Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bisexual Women in the Twenty-First Century reflects the brave new world of bisexual women's lives through an eclectic collection of articles that typifies an ongoing feminist process of theory grounded in life experience. The book's broad scope addresses a world created in response to lesbian-feminism, homophobia within the mainstream women's movement, and sexism within the gay rights movement. The book includes Carol Queen's memoirs of the swinging lesbian scene in the 1970s, a critical examination of Alice Walker's novel The Temple of My Familiar, and a look back at the controversy surrounding bisexual inclusion in the Northampton Lesbian and Gay Pride March in Massachusetts in the early 90s. Previous groundbreaking work on bisexuality had to focus on breaking the silence around bisexual invisibility. This collection works from that foundation to explore the complexities and histories of bisexual women's lives.

Bisexual Women in the Twenty-First Century examines: tensions between lesbians and bisexual women the shifting place of bisexual women in society the use of skin color as a charged metaphor the inclusion of bisexuality into queer theory groundbreaking new work on bisexual youth the creative use of the sacred whore archetype Bisexual Women in the Twenty-First Century is an essential source of social and political critique, and a vital resource for anyone interested in the complex dynamics of human sexuality, regardless of sexual orientation.

Synopsis:

This insightful new book from Dawn Atkins, editor of Lesbian Sex Scandals and Looking Queer, illuminates the expanding world of possibilities for bisexual women. Here, bisexual women, young and old, define who and what they are and explore the nuance and meaning of their sexuality from social, political, educational, and artistic viewpoints. Bisexual Women in the Twenty-First Century also examines the media's portrayal of bisexuality, with thoughtful discussions of Chasing Amy and High Art, two popular movies with bisexual main characters.

An insightful new book from the editor of 'Lesbian Sex Scandals' and 'Looking Queer'.
