Radical Feminist Sites

1970s Lesbian Feminism
The materials on this site primarily cover the development and emergence of lesbian feminism, a moment from roughly 1970 to 1975, and addresses the related but separate trajectory of lesbians of color.

Always Causing Legal Unrest
Hey! Don't get us confused with the American Civil Liberties Union! We're NOT that group that supports the pornographers, the Nazis, the KKK, the tobacco industry, and the child pornographers. We're not those guys who wrote a "Friend of the Court" brief for Jake Baker! We're NOT those guys fixated on reciting defamatory, whining mantras about Andrea Dworkin. Instead, we here at the ACLU (Always Causing Legal Unrest, that is) are concerned that conservative values such as corporate trademark laws, private property rights and individual privacy (as opposed to public safety and welfare), severely infringe upon and limit free expression, and they enjoy more protection (legally, socially and politically) than women do in the public and private domain. And we're going to push some buttons to prove it. So, we started a political organization called Pushing Buttons/ACLU and began cranking out buttons with controversial political slogans.

Nikki Craft's homepage

There's a long history of women being ignored or not believed when they speak up about things men have done to them. This is a place designed to break the silence and let women vent about the ways in which we have been treated. The point of the page is not to make men look bad, but simply to give women a voice. We don't have the power to punish the bastards, but this is a space where women can be heard and believed.

Young Radical Wimmin
young radical wimmin is a collective of wimmin who identify as radical feminists. It is essential for the future of the wimmin's liberation movement that young wimmin join together, ensuring feminist visibility and impact for the coming years. The feminism lived by the wimmin of yrw is a feminism that is wimmin-made, one that rejects moderate feminist politics and gets to the root of all oppression. The wimmin of yrw are wimmin-made wimmin, we will not kneel at the alter of patriarchy nor embrace the cock sucking politics of queer, liberal or postmodernism. yrw understand that the personal is political and live our lives defined by a radical focus. yrw see that although wimmin may have made some progress in our societies, while we still live in fear of being raped, beaten, harassed, tortured, prostituted then feminism is not 'post' but necessary to wimmin's (and all the earth inhabitant's) survival. We are also made up of some radical wimmin who believe in militant feminism and will take direct action when needed to save wimmin's lives and have our voices heard.

Hothead Paisan
Dis is the Official Website of Hothead Paisan, homicidal lesbian terrorist, avenger of scum and patron saint of freaks and misfits. Rage therapy like you've never seen it. Shed all guilt and repeat after us: "They deserve it!" And her cat, Chicken, too! Because not everyone WANTS to be in a bad mood...

Hothead comics & crapola: something a real girl can live by.

Hothead Paisan (again)
I wonder what would happen if, say, some lesbian really checked out for lunch, you know, like say her brain just totally shit the bed one day, and she starts believing everything she sees on T.V.? So, like, while she's going about her daily queer routine, all this T.V. crap is seeping in and she's getting psychotic, and like she needs therapy really bad, but she doesn't know it? I bet her boundaries would be really fuzzy. I bet she'd be lots of fun to be around. I bet she'd be a real...

Radical Feminism and Lesbian Separatism
There is almost nothing available on the net about radical lesbian feminism and lesbian separatism-- almost nothing positive anyway. I'm creating this website to combat our invisibility, and combat the lies.
I've begun to solicit content for this site from authentic radical lesbian feminists and lesbian separatists. This is difficult because as a community right now we are splintered, disconnected, disappeared as a part of the general trend to disappear lesbian identity in the name of "inclusion" in these reactionary times.
My aim here is authentic inclusiveness, rather than dilution and negation. I'm interested in anything from a lesbian separatist or feminist perspective that can reasonably be translated to the web. I'm interested in analysis, news, schedules of events, announcements of meetings, addresses of newsletters and publishers, bibliographies, art, poetry. I am especially interested in introductory-level articles addressed to lesbians who are not familiar with the truth about lesbian separatism and lesbian feminism.

Young Radical Wimin Listerv
The main purpose of the Young Radical Wimin Listerv is connection and friendship, to develop a more grassroots movement of radical feminism, one that propels us to act and move forward, together. While this list is open to all radical wimmin, yrw is a space focused on issues facing the growing number of younger (under 35) radical feminist's. yrw is also a group that is open to wimmin-born-wimmin only.
