That was the question faced by Subaru of America executives in the s. Rather than fight larger car companies over the same demographic of white, to year-olds living in the suburbs, executives decided to market their cars to niche groups—such as outdoorsy types who liked that Subarus could handle dirt roads. Then they discovered a fifth: lesbians.
Draft legislation expected to become law later this year will extend fertility treatment rights to single and lesbian women, allow elective egg freezing, and also remove strict anonymity requirements for sperm donation. In its first major overhaul of the legislation governing ART since France is set to remove treatment restrictions currently applicable to single women and lesbian couples. A draft law introduced by the French government in June was submitted to Parliament before its summer recess on 24 July with hopes that it will be debated and ratified without the kind of opposition sparked by President Hollande's legislation for gay marriage.
It was the mid s, and sales of Subaru cars were in decline. After firing the hip ad agency, Subaru of America changed its approach. Rather than compete directly with Ford, Toyota, and other carmakers that dwarfed Subaru in size, executives decided to return to its old focus on marketing Subaru cars to niche groups—like outdoorsy types who liked that Subaru cars could handle dirt roads.

Over the course of the last decades, concurring with increased economic and cultural globalization, the rainbow flag has taken on a somewhat globally recognized symbolic and political meaning for lbgtq people and communities in numerous non-Western locations, where homosexuality tends to remain at least sensitive and taboo, if not illegal. This is also the case in mainland China. Yet, the current status and situation of lgbtq communities there are far from a clear-cut situation of repression and exclusion, as many would readily believe based on the autocratic political regime and innumerable media reports of usually ethnic minority repression and surveillance.
The mainstream media has an issue with using the word lesbian. And that issue—as well as the shaming and rebranding attempts that come with it—only serve to contribute to the homophobia and internalized homophobiathat lesbians grow up with. A particular brand of homophobia, that specifically targets lesbians… and it can be brutal.
Everyone has a story. At WomonWrites, Merril Mushroom had been concerned that we might forget the details of our stories as time goes on. Inshe started holding a workshop there twice a year to talk about how to preserve or document what we could still remember, and many of us began writing down our stories. Not a herstory of bars or tragedy, it is what we did to change our lives, to make life better for lesbians where we live.
