The Furies Collective, Washington D.C.

This site, named to the National Register of Historic Places in May, was the operational center of the Furies, a lesbian feminist separatist collective that was active primarily between 1971 and 1973 but remained influential for a much longer period. The 12 women in the collective published a lesbian feminist edition of Motive, a youth magazine of the United Methodist Church, and a tabloid-size newspaper titled The Furies, which addressed major questions of women’s identity and their relationships with other women, with men, and with society at large. The publications set the agenda of lesbian and feminist discussion for years to come.
