We had a 5-watt capacity [transmitter], the size of a cigarette pack. The antenna was made of glued aluminium stripes on the cover sheet of a tent and we could fold it all in a little backpack. We would go to one of the hills surrounding Graz. We knew that it would take the legal body controlling the radio waves 20 minutes to come to the place where we were. We knew we had about 18 minutes of broadcasting, so we made 18-minute radio shows.

"I have talked about the racism of feminism, and at the time that seem radical, not because it was radical in the United States, because it was what African American women had said about feminism, that white feminism was imposing its own experience and was pretending there was no race at all. But apparently that critique was OK for African Americans to make in the US. What was radical and shocking was that an African woman, oppressed, weak, whatever... charity case, was accusing white American women of being racists! How dare you? I was shocked by the reaction."
