An Intimacy of Equals: Lesbian Feminist Ethics
Harrington Park Press, 1996 - Philosophy - 157 pages
At a time when increasing numbers of lesbians have learned that therapy doesn't work, religion may not be a haven, and even cinema is problematic, this book presents an exciting way forward. Readers find in An Intimacy of Equals an accessibly written blend of intellectually challenging theory alongside autobiographical narrative. Reading this anthology is intended to be, very like the editing process which created it, a means of pulling together the diverse strands of lesbian strategies for coping with marginalization from the mainstream.Essays by activists, academics, fiction writers, film theorists, clerics, and agnostics include Julia Penelope on “femininity,” Rabbi Sheila Shulman and lapsed Catholic writer Patricia Duncker on feminism and the Bible, Celia Kitzinger on the misuse of psychology, Anna Livia on the meaning of gossip, and much more.
