Abstract

In this short piece I hope to draw attention to the location of class within debates over lesbian feminism and queer theory, acknowledging some intellectual legacies, departures and points of intersection. My thoughts in constructing this paper on the relevancies – or otherwise – of lesbian feminism today, and the potential erasures and enduring legacies of and within this, were one of panic and inspiration: could I effectively capture a moment then? An endurance now? And a possible gap in-between the past and the present, embodied in the generations of older and younger lesbian feminists?
