Uncompromising Positions: Reiterations of Misogyny Embedded in Lesbian and Feminist Communities' Framing of Lesbian Femme Identities
AbstractQueer femmes in 1950s bar cultures were often not viewed as "real lesbians;" radical feminism condemned femmes as trying to please patriarchy. This paper investigates ways such views regarding femmes reiterate misogynist notions of female bodies. It places femme narratives challenging such conceptualizations as contesting counter-cultural reiterations of misogyny.

Cet article étudie les façons dont ce genre de vues au sujet de femmes réitère les notions misogynes sur le corps féminin. Il place les narrations su les femmes en mettant endéfice genre de conceptualisation comme contestant les réitérations contre-culturelles de la misogynie.
