Abstract

The protests and activism of women's liberation of the 1960s and 1970s became defining images for the modern feminist movement. An important factor in analyzing these events is examining the differences beween what the protests were trying to demonstrate and how the media at the time chose to represent the movement. The media's representation of the 60s and 70s feminist movement was a key factor in how the country came to view feminism, and the effects of this propaganda can be seen in the post-feminism of the women's liberation movement. This research seeks to analyze the negative effects that media representation has on skewing the ideals and facts of modern feminism.
