Women in Limbo (WIL) started in the East Village at  the Limbo Lounge in the fall of 1983 as a place for women artists to meet, show slides and videos, organize exhibits, produce events, and perform. In the spring of 1991 Women in Limbo reemerged at the Knitting Factory  on Houston Street on Sunday afternoons meeting weekly in the Knot Room to create ‘works-in-progress’ programs based on themes from women's lives.  In 1993 WIL joined with Big Red Productions to create WIL programs for television.  In May of 1995 BRP launched the five-part National Public Television Series, Women in Limbo Presents. WILP premiered on WNET and broadcast in 26 cities nationwide. Women in Limbo met at the Knitting Factory from 1991 to the end of 1997, meeting weekly from 4:00 to 6:00PM in the Knot Room from September to May.  WIL moved with the Knitting Factory to Tribeca and continued programs in the Alterknit space. On  May 14-15th of 1995 WIL/BRP expanded the programs to include a 2 day long conference, Reflecting Ourselves. The conference met at the Knitting Factory on Mother’s Day to present 2 programs:   Growing Up Female beginning in the Main space, followed by a brunch and Mothers and Daughters Program in the Alterknit.  WIL/BRP launched a four part evening program series, Intersections and Connections, to coincide with the television series."
