The Feminist Sex Wars and Beyond: “Sisterhood” and Sex

Lynn Comella, Carol Queen #cconfem CatalystCon West - September 28, 2013


  1. In this session, Dr. Carol Queen, staff sexologist at Good Vibrations, and Dr. Lynn Comella, a women’s studies professor at UNLV, discuss the history of the feminist sex wars and the rise of sex positive feminism.

    The effects on the mainstream feminist movement of conflicts about sexuality — including BDSM, sex work, and pornography — still resonate. Learn about the past events and players responsible for representing sexuality-related issues as dangerous to women, and the activists who refused to allow sex and feminism to be separated, advocating for diverse sexual possibilities for women. Finally, what’s the future of this discordant discussion?
