Introduction to Conference Papers

(November 2003 to January 2004): The papers listed below are the most recent conference papers I have delivered. Earlier conference papers can either be found in the 'Lesbian Feminism' section of the website (the 'political lesbian' ones), or have been published elsewhere, especially in Radical Feminism Today(those on 'defining feminism' or 'the meaning of feminism').

A complete list of the conference papers I have given is provided after the links to the papers below.
