Julian Bourg: “ ‘Your Sexual Revolution is Not Ours’: French Feminist ‘Moralism’ and the Limits of Desire – March 20, 2008


Bourg will examine the heated debates during the 1970s between French feminists and male activists. As the women’s and gay liberation movements took off after the revolts of May 1968, tensions emerged over the meaning of newfound sexual and gender freedom. Liberation impulses to overthrow repressive limits in general—embodied by the gay liberation activist and theorist Guy Hocquenghem—conflicted with how others, notably women, were drawing new limits in the name of competing visions of liberation.
