In 1978, feminist author Kate Millett founded an art colony for women in Poughkeepsie, USA, that remained in operation until the beginning of the new millennium. The colony was founded out of a belief that a gender-specific community would provide an environment where women artists could work unencumbered by social stigma.
Millet is most known for Sexual Politics (1970) ad her ground-breaking work for women's liberation. She was a member of both the feminist and gay liberation movements that inspired feminist and lesbian separatist cultural and communal experiments in the 1970s.
Millet Farm evolved from incorporating elements of the radical feminist, gay liberation, and avant-garde movements. This book is made out of contributions from past residents at Millett Farm, collected and edited by S.O.J. The photographs were taken by Michelle Koals and Jane Winter, also past residents at Millett Farm.
