Ginny Z. Berson, one of Olivia Records' founding members and visionaries, kept copious records during those heady days of building Olivia—days also fraught with contradictions, conflicts, and economic pitfalls. With great honesty, Berson offers her personal take on what those times were like, revisiting the excitement and the hardships of creating a fair and equitable lesbian-feminist business model—one that had no precedent.
