Women's Liberation

Description

An extension of the women’s liberation movement, the Summerhill Collective’s leaflet on the organization’s goals points to shifting ideas about parenthood, specifically the relationship between mother and child. Defining the nuclear family as a site of oppression for both parent and child, the Summerhill Collective sought to associate childrearing as a pleasurable and respectable endeavor.
