Abstract [en]

In the article, I discuss the importance of the figuration ”the woman-identified woman” to lesbian feminists in Sweden during the 1970s and 1980s. I examine which idea based content the figuration was given, as well as the different ways it was manifested, depending on whether it was shaped by socialist radical lesbian feminists, lesbian cultural feminists or lesbian postmodern feminists. The concept figuration should be associated with a material and political mapping of situated and bodily positions. Theoretically, I’m inspired by the social movement researchers Verta Taylor and Nancy E. Whittier, who are working with the concepts ”boundaries,” ”consciousness,” and ”(re)negotiation.” The article states that the figuration ”the woman-identified woman” becomes important for lesbian feminists, as it (re)negotiates the ways in which lesbian women understood their identities. The figuration contains ideas that politicizes lesbianism and associate it with political solidarity between women. The 1970s socialist radical lesbian feminists shaped ”the woman- identified woman” through creating boundaries towards an older generation of homosexual women. By identifying with and desiring the figuration, they speak of themselves as women identified, conscious feminist and socialist. During the 1980s two new generations of lesbian feminists appear – the lesbian cultural feminists and the lesbian postmodern feminists. The former downplay the socialist element in the figuration, and connect it to a women- identified body, celebrating the female and goddess-like, which only can exist beyond the patriarchy. The latter view ”the woman-identified woman” as hostile towards sexuality, and distance themselves from the figuration.
