An Interdisciplinary Conference on Kate Millett 30 May 2014. School of Arts Birkbeck, University of London
Millett became an iconic figure of second wave feminism after the publication of Sexual Politics in 1970.
As one of the first pieces of academic feminism to come out of the American academy, Sexual Politics was a handbook of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Moreover, after appearing on the cover of Time Magazine in the same year as Sexual Politics was published, Millett became one of the Movement’s most recognizable faces.
