Front Cover
Take Root Media, 2007 - History - 176 pages
Ruth Simpson's pioneering work examines the intersections of lesbianism, feminism and other civil rights movements. From the Closet to the Courts chronicles the gay rights movement of the 70's and Simpson's founding of the first lesbian community center in New York. Through this lens, No segment of society that embraces bigotry is too sacrosanct to escape her insightful scrutiny.
