Lesbian Safety Collection

The Lesbian Safety Collection is a special collection of books, articles, journals, databases and videocassettes produced primarily by lesbian authors and artists who view education as an important social and political front in the battle against homophobic violence.

  • women's safety issues, and violence against lesbians
  • homophobia, heterosexism, and hate crimes
  • sexual harassment and workplace discrimination
  • employment equity, and immigration law reform
  • pornography, censorship, and customs battles
  • medical ethics, and feminist healthcare concerns
