In this essay, one of the founding documents of second wave feminism (sometimes referred to as the “Florida Paper”), the authors critique the “Women’s Manifesto” created by the Women’s Caucus at the 1967 Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) convention, and call for separate groups within the organisation in order to combat sexism and patriarchy within Movement organisations. In the “Handbook of Women’s Liberation” (1970), Marlene Dixon wrote: “That started it, if anything written started it. That paper just laid it on the line.”
