Discover ywtf_lala's Instagram Wondering about the inspiration for our #lavendermenace scented #truthbomb?  @simone_dammit via @RepostApp ======> @simone_dammit:#REPOST FROM @lgbt_history [May 1] : “LAVENDER MENACE,” members of the Gay Liberation Front and the Lavender Menace, including Martha Shelley, far right, New York City, May 1, 1970. Photo by Diana Davies, c/o @nyplpicturecollection.
.
In late November 1969, Ivy Bottini, an open lesbian who both designed the National Organization for Women’s (NOW’s) logo (which is still in use) and served as president of the group’s New York chapter, coordinated and chaired the First Congress to Unite Women, the goal of which was to create a fusion of moderate and radical feminist interests.
.
That same year, Bottini held a forum called “Is Lesbianism a Feminist Issue?” In response, NOW president Betty Friedan, who often spoke out against lesbian participation in the feminist movement—which she described as a “lavender menace”—orchestrated the expulsion from the organization of queer pioneers like Bottini, Rita Mae Brown, and others.
.
On May 1, 1970, forty-seven years ago today, as the Second Congress to Unite Women gathered in New York City, a group of radical lesbian feminists—the self-identified Lavender Menace—zapped (i.e., infiltrated and interrupted) NOW’s gathering in order to protest the exclusion of lesbian feminists. In large part due to the success of the zap, NOW soon passed a resolution protecting the right of a woman to define and express her own sexuality.
.
The Lavender Menace’s appearance revealed the multi-front war that queer women were—and, in many ways, still are—fighting: shunned, on one hand, by mainstream feminist organizations and treated, on the other hand, with derision by the patriarchal structure of the fledgling gay liberation movement. In the months and years following the Second Congress to Unite Women, pioneering groups like the Radicalesbians and Lesbian Feminist Liberation emerged on both coasts to address the unique issues facing the lesbian community. #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #LavenderMenace #Resist 1537238939679611665_3269724668
