In December 2010, ‘Sistershow (1973-1974) and the Queering of Feminism’ was published in Women: A Cultural Review.
It is an article that I wrote with Red Chidgey and is part of a special issue on Rethinking the History of Feminism which is well worth having a look at.
The article uses Sistershow as a case study to argue for strategic, rather than wave based, understandings of feminism history. In other words we are interested in looking at similar strategies activists have used at different points in feminist history.
We suggest that understanding the dynamics of feminist history in this way allows us to see the continuities between the so-called different phases of feminist activism, which often pit generations against each other in ideological battle.
