Login to view price.

The 'Lavender Menace' was a group of lesbian feminists who protested against their exclusion in the feminist movement, at the 'Second Congress to Unite Women' in New York in 1970.  Initially a negative slur against the group, the women adopted and embraced the term, 'Lavender Menace' creating placards and t-shirts which they wore during their protest. 

This became widely acknowledged as a key turning point and a founding movement for lesbian feminism around the world.

This pin is part of the Queer History collaboration collection between Bendigo Artist Dan Cox and Jubly-Umph.

This colourful, gold-backed, hard enamel lapel pin comes beautifully presented on a Jubly-Umph backing card. It is one of a limited edition.
