Along with our launch of a number of recent podcasts including ‘Indigenous Women Leaders Speak Out,’ and ‘Powerful Women and Girls with Disabilities,’ Women’s eNews is thrilled to introduce our newest podcast, ‘Where the L are the Women?

Although Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people have existed as long as humanity itself, female members of the community have often been omitted from historical records.

Women’s eNews is out to change that by launching ‘Where the ‘L’ are the Women,’ a series of interviews with female members of the LGBTQIA+ community by journalists are who members of the community as well.

In the first of a series, Leslie Cohen, author of ‘The Audacity of a Kiss: Love, Art and Liberation,’ is interviewed by Rachel Wilkins, co-founder of Conception Arts.
