Fear of Difference. "Unpacking Queer Politics" by Sheila Jeffreys. [review]
The book is a continuation of Jeffreys’s project to unmask and address the oppressive institutions and practices of a heteropatriachal world. Hers is a polemical voice, and one that gets considerable attention. Jeffreys’s analysis stems from the glory days of British revolutionary lesbian feminism and American lesbian feminist separatism. These two movements peaked sometime in the late 1970s, and there are plenty of citations in "Unpacking Queer Politics" from this softly lit era of lesbian feminist praxis.
