Author(s): Jean Taylor
Jean Taylor wrotie this collection of non-fiction esays, articles, letters and reports over a period of thirty years and gives some idea to the issues and campaigns that racical lesbian feminists were involved in between the 1970s to the present day as they fought with their radical feminist and socialist feminist sisters in the Women's Liberation Movement to overthrow the patriachy and challenge capitalism.
Over these past twenty plus years the challenge has been to maintain lesbian visibillity and to prevent the erasure of radical lesbvian feminist activism in particular in the face of Queer politics that threatens our very existence. For those of us who fought hard for the rights of womyn and girls in a misogynistic and sexist society and stood in solidarity with the Indigenous communities for Land Rights and sopvereignty, it has been particularly shocking that we have been virtually silenced and denigrated to an alarming degree and even more so that governments as well as our own LGBTIQ communities have colluded in this attempt to wipe out lesbian feminist culture and radical politics.
Jean Taylor is a radical lesbian feminist writer, publisher and political activist based on Wurundjeri country in Naarm (Melbouren) Australia. Apart from non-fiction, Jean has also written novels, plays, short stories and poetry much of it based on her life as a nurse, mother, waitress, tran driver, women's refuge worker and grandmother as well as her many travels in Australia and overseas.
