  • Barbara Love, also known as Barbara J. Love, (born 1937) is an American feminist writer and the editor of Feminists who Changed America, 1963-1975. The Veteran Feminists of America said of Love, "If Second Wave activists were graded according to their contributions, Barbara Love would be in the top ten." Love is a lesbian activist, writer and editor. With the National Organization for Women, Love organized and participated in demonstrations, such as the demonstration against The New York Times which resulted in the integration of the want ads which helped support improvements towards equal pay for equal work. She also worked within the organization to improve the acceptance of lesbian feminists within the organization. She helped to found consciousness-raising groups for lesbian feminists and was active in the gay liberation movement. Her mother supported her at gay rights and gay pride marches. With her lover and fellow feminist, Sidney Abbott, she co-authored the classic book Sappho was a Right-on Woman: A Liberated View of Lesbianism that she would hope would lead to greater awareness of society oppression of women and lesbians. She helped in the presentation to the American Psychiatric Association (APA) which led to the removal of homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). (en)
