Being a woman in the 1960s and 1970s must have been an extraordinary thing. The times were turbulent, filled with chaos and change. The globe pulsed with mayhem and newness. Women were grappling with an emerging feminist movement, getting their heads together, figuring out where they stood on issues like the Equal Rights Amendment, the Pill, and Roe v. Wade, trying to liberate themselves, men, everybody. Race relations were being seen for what they were: strained, fake, embittered. Women were making connections between racism and sexism, pointing an accusatory finger at something called a "patriarchy."
