The variety of faces at women’s rights events was amazing. There were women in their sixties wearing small white gloves, ten-year-old girls with “Women’s Liberation” buttons pinned to their sweatshirt, professional women in tweed suits, and counter-culture students with bandanas and sandals. Because I was there as an activist, not simply an observer, I could move through crowds at public and private events with ease. As both a photographer and a young feminist, it was exhilarating.
