Transcript flop I" f Feminist Talent Malvina Reynolds, Photo by Phiz Mezey. The Co-Respondents (from left) Sandra Nisbet, Denise Livingston, Patricia Larson. CHARLEY'S AUNTS are, as they like to say, "real sisters as well as part of the sisterhood." Kate Butler, Helen Tucker and Becky Mills are all active in the women's movement, each busy with activities like producing a film on the Equal Rights Amendment in Nevada, teaching under Title I programs in San Rafael, California, and serving as director of San Francisco's Advocates for Women. After coming together to perform on the album, Virgo Rising, Charley's Aunts have entertained audiences throughout the West, including the NOW Western Regional Conference in Las Vegas. Kate, Helen, and Becky perform their own songs which reflect a deep concern for human freedom and give new musical dimension and inspiration to the concerns of the women's movement. MALVINA REYNOLDS has been writing songs- both words and music—since the early 50's, and many of us are familiar with her compositions— "Little Boxes," "Turn Around," "Morningtown Ride," "What Have They Done To the Rain," "It Isn't Nice," "Magic Penny"—through their performances and recordings by such leading singers as Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Harry Bela- fonte, The Seekers and The Limeliters. She had more good songs than were being picked up other singers, so in her 50's, Malvina took to the road and began singing on her own, making successful appearances at concerts, college assemblies, festivals, and national conferences. She has also appeared, singing her own songs as the character Kate on Sesame Street. She has toured in Japan, in England and France. Many of her songs are topical, though she writes on any subject that interests her—love songs, children's songs, ballads, nowhere songs. "Malvina has charm and dignity and talent. Malvina has a soul that perfectly fits her own definition: 'The soul is not inherent. It is something you accumulate in the process of living,' " says Eric Winter of London's New Musical Express. THE CO-RESPONDENTS, bringing talent and sensitivity to a presentation of the celebrated New Portugese Letters by the Three Marias (Maria Isabel Bar- reno, Maria Veho Da Costa and Maria Teresa Horta), have combined experience in the performing arts and social consciousness to produce programs of readers' theater designed to entertain as well as to stimulate thought in their audiences. Patricia Branch Larson and Sandra Lewis Nisbet both earned B.S. degrees at San Jose State College, with M.S. degrees from the University of Oregon and Indiana University, respectively. Active in theater wherever they have lived, Patricia and Sandra have also pursued teaching careers. They are joined by Denise Livingston as vocalist and guitarist. Denise has a B.A. in music from the Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington. The works of the Co-Respondents, currently including "Battle-Ax. Women and War," "Enter Laughing. Women and Equality;" and "Fun and Games. Women and Marriage," have brought them high praise such as this from producers of a CBS documentary on feminism in Los Angeles: "By dramatizing a wide range of feminist literature and philosophy, the Co-Respondents bring humor and an historical perspective to the current feminist movement. Audiences—pro and con—will be moved and enlightened by the poignant presentations of these talented women." 13
