Ti-Grace Atkinson

 

In this clip, philosopher and feminist theorist Ti-Grace Atkinson visits the Fresno State Campus, where she is met, enthusiastically, by Chicago and her students.

Ti-Grace Atkinson was president of the New York chapter of the National Organization for Women in 1967, before leaving the organization in 1968 to advocate for a more radical agenda. She was a member of the Daughters of Bilitis and founded The Feminists, a radical feminist group active until 1973. By 1971 she had written several pamphlets on feminism and was advocating specifically for political lesbianism. Her most famous book, Amazon Odyssey was published in 1974. Today she teaches philosophy at Tufts University where her areas of interest include feminism, Frege, and de Beauvoir.
