About the Authors

Hi! My name is Sam Turner, and I'm an English and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies double major at Ohio State. I joined the Reclaiming Our Histories team after taking Dr. Mytheli Sreenivas' 'History of Feminist Thought' class in the Spring of 2018. I have loved being able to work closely with archival texts and materials on this project--the opportunity to dive into a topic that has gone basically unexplored has been really interesting. Being able to see what the fight for gay rights looked like decades ago is surreal, especially considering both the progress that's been made and the historical throughlines that shed light on the things we're still fighting for. I hope you enjoy the exhibit!

Hi! My name is Meg Johnston, and I recently graduated in August of 2018 with a double major in Psychology and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Sam and I worked together on this project in our History of Feminist Thought class and I'm so glad we were able to expand upon and publish it! I loved getting more experience using archival material and transferring it to a digital format and exploring a ton of material that hadn't been looked at closely in decades. It's been a pleasure to work on this exhibit!
