Presenting my research at a faculty Colloquium on this snowy, sleety, day, is the perfect excuse to finally wear this BCBG Max Azria military sweater coat I thrifted at a consignment shop in Princeton.
Let’s hope the novocaine I received this morning to get a cavity filled wears off soon, or else I’ll be slurring my way through the presentation.
(Unseen: slim black Brooklyn Industries trousers and Nine West knee-high zipper boots)

ANTICREDENTIALS

Dayna Tortorici on Shulamith Firestone, in n+1:

For how few know of Firestone’s incalculable contribution to women’s liberation, fewer still know that she saw herself first and foremost as an artist. Her friends from the movement admired her as a seemingly pure revolutionary, seeking change for change’s sake; but Firestone herself aspired to a profound creative freedom for which social, civil, and sexual liberties were only the means. As part of a literary proposal she once wrote (under the header “ANTICREDENTIALS”—a cover letter from the counter-culture), Firestone explained, “I came to New York to pursue a painting and writing career. Finding it nearly impossible at that time (1967) for a woman to ‘make it’ legitimately, I instead gave my creative energy to founding a women’s liberation movement.” After years of “concentrated political activity,” she wrote, “I deserve to unite these split personalities: artist and politico.”

Read the whole thing. Remembrances by Jo Freeman, Ti-Grace Atkinson, Ann Snitow, Kate Millett, and more, memorializing Shulie and the women’s liberation movement.
