“...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.
