From the Daily Dot

Johanna Demetrakas's Feminists: What Were They Thinking? does not present a clean narrative about the women's movement, second-wave feminism, or, as its title suggests, why women decide to fight for their rights. Instead, it offers a discordant visual anthology that unintentionally conveys an equally important message: Radical change is never linear. Demetrakas and a team of assistants interview dozens of feminists, including activists and celebrities like Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Cheryl Swannack. But critical intersections of the women's movement and feminism Рsuch as race, class, sexuality, and mental health Рcome off as footnotes.
