In Defence of Separatism
When a political group wants to strategise so that its members can arrive at agreed-on political tactics and ideas, they call for, and create, separate spaces. When the women’s liberation movement sprang into life, it was women joining together to fight against their oppression. The difference is that women are supposed to love men. Written in 1976, this book has new relevance at a time when women are facing misogyny and erasure.
Her work is a must-read for any lesbian figuring out feminist politics.
