Women's Liberation

“Out of the conflict between our pain and the way we were socialized has been born a new creation: the women's liberation movement. Out of the conflict between the women’s liberation movement and society will be born a creature who does not yet exist: a liberated woman."

—Meredith Tax, Woman and Her Mind: The Story of Daily Life

This germinal essay of the women’s liberation movement was published by the Free Press in 1970.
