CHANGE HAS A FEMALE FACE

Our visual record of 1970’s feminism is incomplete. There are hundreds of images of national leaders and large marches from the Women’s Movement. But the small protests and quiet gatherings that were at the heart of the movement have rarely been seen. Yet they are closer in spirit to the way young women are coming together today to fight for reproductive rights.  When I started documenting the struggle to end sexism, I was 21, a photography major at San Francisco State University, and an activist in the fight for gender equality. Shot from 1969-1972, these images provide an unseen intimate view of second-wave feminism, one that speaks to the present moment.
