Collection of Susan Guggenheim
“This is part of my collection of early feminist writings, from the beginnings of the Women’s Liberation Movement. I bought these works when I joined the Movement in 1972, when I was in college. One was supposed to read a list of stuff in preparation for joining a Consciousness Raising group. So I did. In the beginning of the Movement, we talked about collecting this material for a post-revolutionary archives. In fact, several archives were born from this idea – there are archives that I know of at Duke University, and also in Chicago, Montana and London. I collected these items with the thought that one day I could contribute them to an archive devoted to the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement.
“I don’t collect anything else – only a few pieces here and there. Some art, some books, some writings, some films.”
