When lesbian issues and interests overlap with queer issues, the unique needs, concerns, and interests of lesbians can get lost in the shuffle. The Journal of Lesbian Studies helps sort through the confusion, fostering new lesbian scholarship without cutting ties to grassroots activism. The journal gives the lesbian experience an international and multicultural voice, presenting book reviews, poetry, letters to the editor, debates, and commentaries. An enlightening balance of scholarly and practical information, the Journal of Lesbian Studies presents an interdisciplinary body of work in a completely lesbian context. The journal is a vital forum for research and theory, addressing the history, politics, science, race, literature, and life cycle issues of women who love women. In recent issues, the Journal of Lesbian Studies has explored: lesbian sexual practices, identities, and politics; motherhood and family life; beauty mandates, body image, and eating disorders; surviving childhood sexual abuse; lesbianism in female and coed correctional institutions; sexual harassment of lesbians in the workplace. The Journal of Lesbian Studies examines the cultural, historical, and interpersonal impact of the lesbian experience on society, keeping all readers-professional, academic, or general-informed and up to date on current findings, resources, and community concerns. Independent scholars, professors, students, and lay people as well as clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, sex therapists, criminologists, and lawyers will find this interdisciplinary journal essential on the topic of lesbian studies!
