Liz Stanley who’s been involved in the meeting’s organisation told Gay News: “Any woman is welcome to the meeting.”
After a general discussion about involving more women in CHE, people will split up into discussion groups.
These discussion groups will talk about subjects including the problems of married gay and bisexual women, and the children of gay parents; coming to terms with one’s homosexuality, relating to each other and to gay men as well as to heterosexual people; where gay women can go for help – and the specific problems of the help organisations; women’s liberation; radicial feminism and its relationship to the gay women’s struggle; the problems of isolated gay women in provincial towns.
After that they’ll get together again to discuss “Women In CHE – Where We Go From Here”.
After the conference there will be a mixed disco – although the conference itself is for women only.
