LION WOMAN'S LEGACY: An Armenian-American Memoir
by Arlene Voski Avakian
Afterword by Bettina Aptheker
Arlene Avakian’s memoir evokes the quarrels, ambition, prejudice, and courage that shaped her coming of age in a family that immigrated to the United States to escape genocide in Turkey. Inspired by her passionate feminism and strengthened within a loving lesbian relationship, Avakian records and re-examines her personal history, discovering the story of her grandmother, which brings with it a legacy of radical politics and a powerful affirmation of ethnic identity.
