Wo sind die radikalen Lesben geblieben? - wenn Feministinnen moderat werden.....
Dieses Buch zeigt auf, wie die einst starke lesbisch-feministische Bewegung der siebziger Jahre, in der für lesbische Feministinnen Gleichberechtigung in ihren Beziehungen und in ihrer Sexualität wichtig war, von der queeren Politik der neunziger Jahre unterdrückt wurde. Es plädiert dafür, Lesben erneut als die Vorhut einer sozialen Veränderung zu sehen.
Eine längst notwendige Analyse!!! Bitte LESEN - meint Uschi

Sheila Jeffreys (born 1948) is a lesbian feminist scholar and political activist, known for her analysis of the history and politics of sexuality in Britain. She is a professor in Political Science at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Jeffreys's argument that the "sexual revolution" on men's terms contributed less to women's freedom than to their continued oppression has both commanded respect and attracted intense criticism.Jeffreys argues that transsexuals reproduce oppressive gender roles and mutilate their bodies through sex reassignment surgery. Some of Jeffrey's other controversial positions are that lesbian culture has been negatively impacted by emulating the sexist influence of the gay male subculture of dominant/submissive sexuality, and that women suffering pain in pursuit of beauty is a form of submission to patriarchal sadism.
Sheila Jeffreys writes and teaches in the areas of sexual politics, international gender politics, and lesbian and gay politics. She has written six books on the history and politics of sexuality. Originally from the UK, Sheila moved to Melbourne in 1991 to take up a position at the University of Melbourne. She has been actively involved in feminist and lesbian feminist politics, particularly around the issue of sexual violence, since 1973. She is involved with the international non-government organization, Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, in international organising.
