0 Reviews
Amazon to Zami explores the existence of a global network of lesbian feminist activists in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. The contributors challenge the assumption that lesbianism is a political phenomenon exclusive to the white decadent West. They explore the history, myths and oppression of lesbians in their respective countries, and place lesbian concerns in the context of the pressing political issues of their regions. Lesbian involvement in the abolition of apartheid in South Africa and the implication of race and class for lesbian politics; the relationship between lesbians and development in India; the influence of fundamentalist Catholicism on the lives of lesbians in the Philippines; and the history of the Latin American and Caribbean Lesbian Movement are some of the themes of this anthology.
