    Spotlight: Sisters of the Press: Radical Feminist Literature, 1967-1977

    In the decade following the publication of Betty Friedan’s book, The Feminine Mystique (1963), feminists resorted to other genres to communicate their message. Purchased for a few cents, handed out at meetings, or sent via mail, radical manifestos, pamphlets, and periodicals electrified the woman’s movement. They called for a change in consciousness, urging feminists to work outside the system. They shed light on discrimination in women’s health, education, and labor, as well as discrimination in the women’s movement itself. This exhibition showcases recent acquisitions that illustrate the complexities of radical feminism in its heyday.
