Two speeches at a Domestic Violence Services Conference: Carol Mackay's talk on "rural women and their special needs" focuses on planning to end domestic violence against women in Wyoming (20 min.). Mollie Lowery, organizer of Los Angeles shelters for the homeless, entitles her talk "On a list of 100 concerns, where do you think earthquake safety rates with homeless women?" Lowery describes types of homeless women, why they are homeless, and what some of them are doing about it. Lowery is currently with Los Angeles Men's Place (L.A.M.P.) and also speaks of another project called Jill's Place (domestic violence shelters or safe zones). This tape is undated, but L.A.M.P. was established in 1985, so this recording is likely from the late 1980s.
