This publication by Robin Morgan captures the sentiment of the Women’s Liberation Movement following the Miss America Pageant Protest. Like many others attest to as well, Morgan speaks of an awakening for women that makes oppression personal–to Morgan, women are the oldest oppressed class in the world. It is for this reason that the status of women in the larger New Left Movement has not been sufficient to satisfy the needs of feminists. Instead, the new movement aims to establish itself as important, and its subjects as primary.
