This chapter focuses largely on lesbian feminist theorizing in the 1990s, and argues that although it was committed to articulating differences between women, it nevertheless failed to make room for fully lesbian feminist theorizing. The assumption is challenged that if only feminist thinking began from the right conception of ‘woman’, it would then be adequate to the task of theorizing lesbians.
