Feminist Love Letters

In 1971, Nancy Spero sent Lucy Lippard a letter with the simple but impassioned message, “The enemies of women’s liberation in the arts will be crushed. Love Nancy.” This note serves as the inspiration for Love Letters, a project that invites participants to pen a letter to their favorite feminist. Collaborators are invited to profess their love, send words of support and encouragement, or unleash their feminist fury in a letter to a contemporary or historic feminist.

If you feel inspired to pen your own letter, please send a 300dpi jpeg to 1971loveltter@gmail.com. All future contributions will be posted on our blog.

This project was initiated by Sara Fowler and Cindy Rehm
