Description - Sex and Sensibility by Arlene Stein
Tracing the evolution of the lesbian movement from the bar scene to the growth of alternative families, this text illustrates how a generation of women transformed the women-centered ideals of feminism into a culture and a lifestyle. The text relates the development of a "queer' sensibility in the 1990s to the foundation laid by gay rights and feminist movements a generation earlier. It considers the effect that the lesbian feminist movement had, and continues to have, on contemporary women's definitions of sexual identity.
