Abstract / Summary
This article is part of a larger research project on postwar feminism and lesbian pulp fiction. It examines various attempts at censoring the lesbian pulp novel, by both postwar conservatives and second wave feminists. The article examines the discursive construction of the young female reader in both US congressional documents and second wave feminist polemic.
The politics of danger and the various articulations of national and sexual ideologies have interesting and unexpected points of convergence, especially as they create the passive young female as ultimately corruptible reader.
