INDWELLING: Living in a Female Body

                      This year we honor

Dr. Leonore Tiefer, author, educator, researcher, therapist, and activist. She has specialized in many areas of sexuality, and written widely about the medicalization of men’s and women’s sexuality. She has been interviewed by news media around the world and appeared on many news shows as the foremost critic of “disease-mongering” trends in the medical management of women’s sexual problems. The website of her educational anti-medicalization campaign,, is a major resource on this topic for journalists, colleagues, and the public. She is currently Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at both New York University School of Medicine and Albert Einstein College of Medicine and has a private psychotherapy and sex therapy practice in Manhattan. Her Westview Press book, Sex is Not a Natural Act and other essays now in a 2nd edition (2004), has been translated into several languages. For more information, please visit

-For the last 30 years, The WTCI has offered a Speakout, a time honored traditional forum for women to find their individual voice and share experiences, allowing the personal story of each woman to be heard, dignified, and transformed by our coming together.

–Poet Lily Myers is a Sociology student at Wesleyan University, where she competed on the 2012-2013 WeSLAM team. She grew up in Seattle, Washington. She is convinced that by sharing and listening to each other’s writing, we can better understand and thus humanize each other. She loves poetry for the way it makes us honest and vulnerable. She is looking for poetry submissions for her feminist blog: Contact her with thoughts or submissions at
