Feminism Is: Kate Millett — Revolutionary Wordsmith

September 8, 2017

This week we lost one of the most influential second-wave feminist thinkers, Kate Millett.

Millett was the author of the groundbreaking feminist book, Sexual Politics (1970).  Here’s a quote:

“It is interesting that many women do not recognize themselves as discriminated against; no better proof could be found of the totality of their conditioning.”

Take some time to read about this extraordinary woman, writer, and artist. Though she was virtually unknown in mainstream culture today, she helped change all our lives.

Read “What Kate Did” in the New Republic.

Read “Kate Millett, Ground-Breaking Feminist Writer, Is Dead at 82” in the New York Times.

Read “Postscript: Kate Millett’s Radical Spirit” in The New Yorker.
