Quote:
"In conjunction with other events—attending a women's rally, reading current feminist theory, negotiating a sexual relationship with my boyfriend—my experience of viewing [Not a Love Story: A Film about Pornography] helped to consolidate my emerging white, middle class, straight female identity. In 1985, a twenty-two year old college student, still in the process of claiming my own sexuality, and an initiate to feminism, I was the ideal viewer of [Not a Love Story]."
-- Elizabeth Susan Anderson
