== Quotes ==
For a woman to be a lesbian in a male-supremacist, capitalist, misogynist, racist, homophobic, imperialist culture, such at that of North America, is an act of resistance.
Cheryl Clarke, "Lesbianism: An Act of Resistance," in This Bridge Called My Back (1981), p. 126Lesbianism is not mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, in contrast to male homosexual behavior, which is expressly forbidden as a capital crime. The absence of discussion of lesbianism in this context has raised scholarly interest.
Rebecca T. Alpert, Jewish Women's Archive, "Lesbianism".
