Summary I had just witnessed women who shingled their own roofs, drove eighteen-wheeler trucks, and built their own houses, as well as kept them clean and cooked a damn good meal. On women's land I am a first-class citizen, I'm treated as an equal. I now see the world with righteous anger and hope. Living in womyn's community has provided that lens for me. Elizabeth Sturrus, third wave feminist, One of the driving forces in the lives of many lesbians is the search for community in a society that favors heterosexuality and often turns a cold shoulder toward women who love.
