Lesbian feminism grew directly out of two movements that began in the 1960s: feminism and gay liberation. Though premised on essentialist notions of “woman,” the lesbian feminist movement was an important corrective to the displacement lesbians suffered in the feminist movement, (where they’d been dubbed the “lavender menace”) and in the gay liberation movement (which was overwhelming male). Lesbian feminists created a unique culture that flourished throughout the 1970s and well into the ‘80s and, for many young lesbians, served as a crucial base for their development.
