“...In or about 1970...” a shift in sexual politics impacted the arts with the publication of books by artists and literary scholars: Kate Millett’s Sexual Politics; Shulamith Firestone’s The Dialectic of Sex, and Germaine Greer’s The Female Eunuch. Fifty years later we consider how the arts shaped the Anglophone 1970s women’s movement and how the legacy of that relationship resonates today.
