Images of the 1970's Women's Movement Photographs by Nina Hamberg

The images we've seen of the second-wave feminist movement show the grand stage: the huge East Coast protests, the national leaders, the first demonstrations. But those photographs only tell part of the story. This project, created 1969-1972, focuses on the small protests and quiet gatherings that were at the heart of that feminist resurgence. It consists of more than 100 images, silver gelatin prints and an extensive collection of feminist ephemera. "Images of the 1970's Women's Movement" is shown here in for the first time.
