Everyone wants to know how I met Betty -
I interviewed Betty 8 years ago and less than half way through the interview she looked me dead in the eye, reached her hand across the table, and said, "we're going into business together. Shake on it".
I didn't hesitate for a moment, grabbed her hand, and "shook on it". I knew we would work because that's exactly how I would have handled it. Then throw in my commitment to feminist ideals and we were are a perfect match.
The women in my family were suffragettes. My great aunt was one of the first female physicians in New York (when she signed on to a hospital in 1898 nineteen male doctors resigned on the spot). They fought for the right to vote and my grandfather was featured in Gerber baby food ads because "suffragettes feed their babies Gerber".
I grew up in a Christian Fundamentalist home (I know from feminism to the Moral Majority). My father was a minister and I was taught at home. There was no radio, television, and no sex before marriage. My personal experience taught me that sexual repression is used to control and manipulate others.
Betty and I believe that the next phase of feminism is sexual liberation because without sexual freedom there can be no self. We are visually stimulated...we are sexual creatures...and we deserve pleasure.
