Vogue, October 1977: Kate Millet and Charles Dickens

Cross pollinating my blogs this morning. Please click here to jump over to 'Finding Our Way' and find out why I've saved the October 1977 issue of Vogue for 38 years.  By 1977, women were rising. Changing. Throwing off traditional roles. The media and the public were taking notice. And that is exactly the message in 'Finding Our Way'. With photographs, Patsy Cravens and I were exploring who we were and who we were becoming. 
A quote from Dickens here, just because: 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

And so it continues into 2015.
