The Necessary Revolution: Sex-Positive Feminism in the Post-Barnard Era
Abstract:In this interview sexologist and author Carol Queen discusses feminist and queer sexual politics in the pre and post Barnard eras. Despite the policing of sexual desires and practices during the height of the feminist sex wars, Queen argues that sex-positive feminists and sex radicals were able to create alternative spaces, resources, and counter-discourses that had tangible effects on many people's sexual lives and identities.
