Gratitude, bewilderment, nostalgia, vitriol and a host of other emotions emerge from the pages of Secret Sisters: Stories of Being Lesbian and Bisexual in a College Sorority, edited by Shane L. Windmeyer and Pamela W. Freeman (Out on Fraternity Row). In honest, fascinating essays, lesbian and bisexual women tell of their experiences in the Greek system from the 1950s to the present. Some of them came out and were warmly accepted (one woman brought her girlfriend to the end-of-the-year formal), while others were ostracized and put on probation by their sisters, and others simply left. This rare glimpse into a cloistered world will intrigue women of all ages.
