Milwaukee’s Women’s Liberation Movement
In 1969, “Kaleidoscope,” Milwaukee’s underground press, carried calls for the formation of a local women’s liberation group. The calls came from women swept up in 1960s liberation struggles – Civil Rights, anti-war and welfare rights efforts – who resolved to channel their newfound skills into working on their own issues. Throughout the 1970s, Milwaukee would be the site of diverse groups working for social change. This course addresses local feminism from a political, cultural and lesbian perspective.
