CHANGE HAS A FEMALE FACE

The images we have from the 1970’s Women’s Movement only tell part of the story. We know what the national leaders and large marches looked like. But the small protests and quiet gatherings that were at the heart of the fight for gender equality have rarely been seen. I began capturing the struggle for women’s rights in 1969. I was 21, a fine arts photography major and an activist in the struggle to end sexism. From 1969-1972, I documented what I saw. These images provide an intimate view of second-wave feminism, one that speaks to the present moment.
