Making a Scene Lesbians and Community across Canada, 1964-84 Press Reviews

This well-researched study of twenty formative years of lesbian community-building in Canada covers a lot of ground ... Millward has captured the flavor of an era by combining data from previous studies with eyewitness accounts and black-and-white photos from private collections. She proposes a symbiotic relationship between self-defined lesbians and their scene or social milieu: a lesbian identity requires a social context, and vice versa. -- Jean Roberta * The Gay and Lesbian Review *
