But, through some historical documents, we will make in this chapter, a relation concerning the evolution of the lesbianism in history. To start with the first register, we have Code of Hammurabi, dated of 1770 a.C e, according to Bouzon (1992), oldest and is known body legal. Created for Hammurabi it was based on old Semitic and sumerianas laws. In this document the SALZIKRUM figure exists, that characterizes one ' ' woman-homem' ' , that according to history, could have one or more wives. According to poet, historian and researcher of the homosexual culture, Judy Grahn (apud Godoy, 1997), the first poetical text was created by a called woman Enheduanna. It, who was son of king Srgon I of Acdia, composed, in 2.300 a.C, for Inanna, considered the goddess of the love.

Enheduanna exaltava the beauty of its goddess and if it related as wife. According to Mott (2003), in some old communities, as of Albania, they had been accepted lesbian relations in the past. Let us take as example the mountainous zones of Cabira, where aborgine only of women existed a composed society, SBRAIE call. In China, this homosexual relation also was found. According to historians, it had women that they intergesticulavam as husband woman, a relation called DIUSHI. In Rome she had the calls? public banns? for women, who were a simple form of the women to satisfy its sexual desires feminine.

Even though the women married men did not leave to go to the banns therefore were there that some charged lesbian desires were become fullfilled. (RICHARDS, 2003) According to Richards author (1993), in old Greece the relations homosexuals supplied the necessity of personal relations of an intensity not found in the marriage. The women, by having been considered as inferior intellectually, physically and emotionally in relation to the men, were excluded from the meetings and masculine meeting, compelling to form them it between itself, a group to deal with the most varied subjects.
