Women Loving Women in Herstory

September 21, 1999

"There's no one to hear. You might as well scream.
They never woke up from the american dream.
And they don't understand what they don't see.
And they look through you and they look past me."
--- from Nowhere To Go by Melissa Etheridge

This site is intended for those 18 and over!

Please make sure that you read my Before You Go On... page before continuing on to the actual herstories as I feel that it will increase not only your enjoyment of this page, but also your understanding of lesbians and bisexual women in herstory.

If you have proof that anything contained here is in any way incorrect or if you have proof of a lesbian or bisexual woman in herstory that is not listed here, please let me know!

IMPORTANT! I have removed all probably and known f2m persons from this herstory project. This is in no way an indication of disapproval but rather a move out of respect for their true gender (male). However, I do hope to include m2f lesbian/bisexual identifed women in the future as the information becomes available to me. If you have any such information (along with PROOF), please let me know. In the mean time, after learning about the women loving women in herstory I have listed in this project, please take a few minutes to learn more about the ts/tg/intersex persons of the past as well. They were and are also invaluable members of our society and deserve to be remembered. Please visit 20th Century TS/TG/Intersex History.
