Abstract or Summary
  • This research summarizes the cumulative efforts of in-depth research, extensive participant observation, and archival analysis focused on Southern Oregon lesbian lands. This community of womyn has persisted in rural Southern Oregon for nearly 30 years. The intention of this study is to examine both the accumulation of knowledge of issues pertaining to the maintenance of "womyn-centered" spaces as well as the future of both the lands and the visions they embody. While most participants believe in the importance of perpetuating the vision of lesbian lands, they are experiencing difficulties in finding new residents. As womyn on rural lands in Southern Oregon discuss the success and challenges, the value of ensuring the future becomes evident. Documenting these rich experiences provides a foundation for womyn seeking alternatives to patriarchy. Thus, womyn on land are interested in sharing their vision with future generations of womyn. Potential for future research includes an exploration of the attitudes among young lesbians, specifically in regards to the presence of a desire to live in community with other womyn closely connected to the earth's natural processes.
