Scope and Content of the Papers
The collection consists of a mailing list, two personal accounts, 17
photographs, three buttons, and seven picket signs related to a 1996 protest
against the Episcopal Church's refusal to ordain women as ministers. On the
verso of two of the picket signs are revealing notes written by Turner. One
button appears to be from a women's strike in 1975.
