Click! The Ongoing Feminist Revolution
Clio Visualizing History is excited to share with Nursing Clio the launch of a free-access, ad-free online historical exhibit titled Click! The Ongoing Feminist Revolution.
The exhibit was developed by a team of historians and educators in collaboration with technical advisors, filmmakers, artists and website designers. It features 46 film clips taken from 27 documentary films, extensive interactive timelines, in-depth essays supported by primary documents, photos, and other resources.
Click! The Ongoing Feminist Revolution highlights the collective action and individual achievements of women from the 1940s to the present. In the spirit of 1970s consciousness-raising, the name refers to the “click” moment when women discovered the powerful ideas of contemporary feminism. The name also refers to the computer keystroke that connects women (and men) to the Internet.
We invite you to start clicking – in both senses of the word – and prepare to have your historical consciousness raised.
