Pressestimmen"[T]he reader of Lesbian Rule is left with as many questions as answers, but they are questions that inspire readers to continue Villarejo's examination of popular imagery."--On Campus With Women "[A]n erudite and complicated book..."--Monica B. Pearl, GLQ "Lesbian Rule [is] a book which retains trans-regional relevance. Villarejo provides real tools with which we can investigate the cinematic lesbian as she appears, or indeed, does not seem to appear, in the lounge rooms, the archives and at the festivals of those of us as far away as Australia."-- Megan Carrigy, Senses of Cinema
