Description: This is audio of a press conference with the Navy women involved in the Dixon Witch Hunt military case that received national attention from 1982-1983. In 1982, several heterosexual women aboard the submariner USS Dixon gave the Naval Investigative Service (NIS) a list of women they suspected to be lesbians, sparking an investigation into the activities of these women. Through threats of court-martial the NIS convinced one of the suspects to confess and provide a list of lesbians aboard ship. The Dixon women fought their charges, under advisement of San Diego attorney Bridget Wilson, and by the end of the investigation only three of the women were discharged.
