The Bird and Women’s Liberation

Anti-war protest march at the corner of 10th and Piedmont, Atlanta, Georgia, circa 1969, V003-600001-A25

As in other social issues, the late 1960s and 1970s were a time of attempting to address injustices to women. The pages of The Bird document the incomplete struggle to expand rights for women, press for equality in all aspects of society, ensure workplace fairness, and guarantee reproductive freedom.
