Tomboys and Bachelor Girls: A Lesbian History of Post-War Britain 1945-71

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2007 - History - 209 pages
Challenging the conventional picture of the post-war decades as years of austerity and conservative femininity, this book traces the emergence of a vibrant lesbian social scene in Britain, centered on the metropolitan nightclubs of post-war London, but also developing across the country, through lesbian magazines and social organizations. This fascinating book brings to life the rich history of post-war lesbian culture for the scholarly and general reader alike.
