Vaginal Orgasm As a Mass Hysterical Survival Response

New York: The Feminists, 1968. A rage-filled speech given by radical feminist Ti-Grace Atkinson in Philadelphia the day after Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. Atkinson begins, "I suppose we all have [sic] put aside the speeches we prepared before last night. In the face of Martin King's death, one must tell the truth as plain as one can." She goes on to claim that "the oppression of women by men is the source of all the corrupt values throughout the world," that marriage and the family are institutions of slavery, that the vaginal orgasm is a way that men oppress women, and that love is the "pay-off for the consent of oppression."

Two 11” x 8 ½” pink sheets mimeographed from typescript, 3 p. of text. All Feminists documents scarce. Item #11714
