PRA Archive #: 

In July 1985, more than 14,000 women gathered in Nairobi, Kenya for the UN's Third World Conference on Women, which marked the end of the Decade for Women. The conference marked a decided evolution from the 1975 International Women's Conference in Mexico City, which was dominated by middle-class white women. Sylvia Borren of the International Lesbian Information Service ("ILIS") talks with KPFK's Helene Rosenbluth about "the lavender connection" - the role of lesbians and Third World women in the women's movement. Kenyan women attending the conference ask Borren questions after her talk. Produced by Helene Rosenbluth.
