CHANGE HAS A FEMALE FACE

Our visual record of the 1970’s Women’s Movement is incomplete. We know what the national leaders and the largest marches looked like. But we have rarely seen the small protests and quiet gatherings that were at the heart of the movement. When I started documenting the struggle for women's rights in 1969, I was 21, a photography major at San Francisco State University, and an activist in the fight for gender equality. Shot over three years, these images provide an unseen intimate view of second-wave feminism, one that speaks to the present moment.
