Alice Neel / Kate Millett

Kate Millett, the brilliant scholar, writer, and artist, tore the roof off mainstream thought of the day with the publication of her Columbia University PhD dissertation, Sexual Politics (1970). Heralded by P. T. Clough as “the first book of academic feminist literary criticism” it stood patriarchy on its head, infusing the second wave of the women’s liberation  movement (misconstrued and backseated by most mainstream media as ‘women’s lib’) with lots of energy for the long haul. ~ yours truly, df
