A Trip Through the Sixties – Women’s Liberation and Feminism

When I was in art college NYC in 1968-1972 one teacher commented on his lack of attention to my work that you are just going to get married and have babies anyway.. after motherhood AND 40 years as a design professional I can say with confidence, that that was not true. My daughters grew up  assuming equal opportunity in their work and equal efforts at housekeeping at home. My horror lies in the sharp rightward tack of this country politically, watching states institute vaginal probe laws I remember how my college roomate nearly died hemmoraging from a botched illeagal abortion. The family values, hard Christian Right want to put women firmly back in the kitchen, where God wants them. We must never let that happen.

My horror lies in the sharp rightward tack of this country politically, watching states institute "vaginal probe" laws I remember how my college roomate nearly died hemmoraging from a botched illeagal abortion. The "family values", hard Christian Right want to put women firmly back in the kitchen, where "God" wants them. We must never let that happen.
