Description

Linda Smith describes her childhood and education, her experiences in the Peace Corps and her introduction to feminist and underground publications. She explains her initial interest in printing, working first for an alternative press in Texas, and then establishing Mountain Moving Press in Missoula, Montana. After closing down the press, Smith got involved in In Other Words, an NPR program with the intent of wanting women's voices to speak for themselves on the radio, in their own language and terms. Smith reflects on history from her perspective as an active feminist.
