Several of the Quest staff went to the Socialist Feminist Conference in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in July, 1975. We went because we thought of ourselves as feminists who were socialists, but we discovered that despite the obvious disagreements among the speakers, most of the views expressed from the speakers’ platform were in conflict with our politics. This article began, then, from a discussion among the five of us who went, and represents our attempts to respond constructively to the conference. We do not intend the article to be primarily a criticism of the conference, but rather an attempt to set out our own concerns as they emerged through our experience in Yellow Springs.
