Partnership and Marriage
Not Equal Liberation stickers (ca. 1996)
Standing for more radical action than assimilating to heterosexual
patterns of marriage, the Women’s Action Coalition argued
that achieving marriage and domestic partnership were not solutions
for liberating lesbians or eliminating homophobia. From the WAC’s
feminist perspective, marriage historically has been a tool for
female oppression, and members objected to perpetuating notions
of women as property and to the state governing monogamous relationships.
