Susan Griffin, poet, playwright and author, and Nellie Wong, poet and activist, read on the opening night of the Feminist Perspectives on Pornography Conference in San Francisco on November 17, 1978, organized by Women Against Violence in Pornography and Media (WAVPM). Lilia Medina introduces the reading. Griffin reads her poem Deer Skull (for Hallie) and then reads excerpts from her new book Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her (New York: Harper & Row, 1978) (same as AZ1072?). Wong opens by first talking about the San Francisco Chronicle's racist review of the show Pearl, then reads dialogue from her play The Interrogation of Ms. Security-Runs-A-Risk, then reads two of her poems, Plain English and On the Crevices of Anger.
