The lesbian movement was founded in July 1974 by breakaway members of the Redstockings Movement. A month later the brand new organization came out on the main scene at a feminist festival in central Copenhagen, when two spokeswomen took turns reading a manifesto. They called for lesbian visibility and action against homophobia imbedded in patriarchal capitalist societies, most manifest in legislation, science and the media.
