Leviathan, vol. 2, no. 1, May 1970


New Left and Women's Liberation


Leviathan was a radical New Left newspaper loosely aligned with Student for a Democratic Society, published in 1969 and 1970. Early editorial leaders of the periodical included Carol Brightman, Beverly Leman, Kathy McAfee, Marge Piercy and Sol Yurick in New York, as well as Peter Booth Wiley, Carole Deutch, Danny Beagle, Matthew Steen, Bob Gavriner, Al Haber, Bruce Nelson, Todd Gitlin, David Wellman in San Francisco. The paper, which took a generally serious, intellectual-minded approach to radical organizing, as opposed to the more irreverent tone of the counterculture, ceased publication in the Fall of 1970 in the wake of SDS factionalization. This issue is dedicated to the women’s liberation movement and includes articles focus on the women’s suffrage movement; the future of women’s liberation; class and the women’s movement; women in the male-dominated movement; small groups and women’s liberation; child care; women, family and capitalism; women’s liberation in England; Cuban women; a poem on the Black Panthers; a short play.
