The Lesbian Liberation Movement (LLM) is both a movement that encompasses liberating a sexual practice from stigmatization, and a political movement challenging the dual oppression of women by the patriarchy's assumption of male supremacy and heterosexuality. Over the years, much has been written on homosexuality, and the Gay Liberation Movement (GLM), yet much of the focus has been on male homosexuals, especially male homosexual activity and the politics that that activity raises.
The Historical Dictionary of the Lesbian Liberation Movement: Still the Rage is a comprehensive overview and resource guide for one of the most invisible social political movements: the Lesbian Liberation Movement. This book helps to make the still-active movement visiblethe history, successes, setbacks, controversies, and issues. This book is a good secondary resource for those studying this social political movement, containing a chronology, contextual overview, dictionary entries that cover persons, laws, terminology, issues, and countries, and an extensive bibliography of primary resources and current work.
A reference work, this book should be in all libraries and used by researchers studying the Lesbian Liberation Movement.
