Most material of all, this book begins to fill the terrible need of an entire population of women, until now not only persecuted and ignored, but deprived of any reasonable account of themselves and the sufferings imposed on them by a hostile society.
Paperback, 251 pages

This little volume by Abbott and Love is a great manifesto and history lesson -- the first half is devoted to the recent history of Lesbians (as the book capitalizes them) and their struggle, while the second looks more towards the future. Particularly interesting as an analysis of the intersection of Women's Lib and Gay Lib. Not a light, fun read, but if nothing else it can make you thank your lucky stars to be living now in these relatively more liberated times.

From 1972! Interesting to compare this to more modern literature.
Kathy
