The Personal is Political: Portraits of Louisiana Second-Wave Feminists

Newcomb Archives

This exhibit showcased women who have been working since the 1970s to make Louisiana a more equitable place, women interviewed for Janet Allured’s 2016 book  “Remapping Second Wave Feminism: The Long Women’s Rights Movement in Louisiana, 1950-1997.”  This book and the accompanying exhibit highlighted how little documentation exists for these "stars of the movement for gender equality," as photographer Carrie Chrisco called her subjects.
