Abstract:

In the first book to analyze shifts in lesbian identity, consciousness, and culture from the 1970s to the 1990s, Arlene Stein adds an essential chapter to the study of the women's movement and offers a revealing portrait of the exchange between a revolutionary generation of feminists and its successors. Beginning with the stories of thirty women who came of age at the climax of the 1970s women's movement - many of whom defined lesbianism as a form of resistance to dominant gender and sexual norms - Stein explores the complex issues of identity that these women confronted as they defined themselves in relation to their communities and to society at large.
