This bestselling pioneering anthology brings together a diverse group of twenty-six feminist writers, therapists and academics. Their work represents a beginning effort to capture the experience of contemporary American lesbians. Writing about their own lives as well as the lives of the women they have observed and counseled, the authors explore four topics central to building a lesbian psychology: identity, relationships, community, and therapy.

As an LGBT therapist and an identified Lesbian myself I found this book great at stating some of the issues affecting Lesbian women and in fact all women. I would recommend this for ALL women as in some articles reflect the viewpoint that sexuality is fluid and not a fixed binary. What is interesting is the documentation of observations that biases are expressed from "straight" women who refuse to think they can love another woman and from lesbians who think that bii-sexuality is a step others take in comming out rather that seeing human sexuality as fluid -- something that varies in one's lifetime. Many other aspects of being a woman and what it means in our culture are brought out. Kathleen Anne OBrien LMSW
