Radio Curious revisits a conversation with Bettina Aptheker, an “out” lesbian and author of "Tapestries of Life: Women's Work, Women's Consciousness, and the Meaning of Daily Experience."
Barry Vogel, Attorney and Counselor is the Host and Producer of Radio Curious. Christina Aanestad is the Assistant Producer.
Political intimacy is closely related to personal intimacy, just as social change is related to personal change. In this edition of Radio Curious we visit with Bettina Aptheker, the author of "Tapestries of Life: Women's Work, Women's Consciousness, and the Meaning of Daily Experience." At the time the program was recorded in 1997, Bettina was a professor of women's studies at the University of California at Santa Cruz and open about identifying herself as a lesbian. When we spoke in February of 1997, we explored the relationship of personal intimacy and political intimacy.

The book Bettina Aptheker recommends is “Ceremony” by Leslie Marmon Silko.
