Kate Millett (1934-2017) was an American feminist writer, educator, artist, and activist who was "a seminal influence on second-wave feminism. Millett is best known for her book Sexual Politics (1970) which examines the ubiquity of male domination in 20th century culture and whose text helped to lay the groundwork for feminist theory. Though Millett made a career of writing and teaching, she was above all a self-taught artist. She is recognized for her early Surrealist furniture sculptures and biomorphic line drawings on paper. In 1978, Millett purchased a farm near LaGrange, New York. The Women’s Art Colony Farm, simply known as “The Farm” offered artist-in-residence accommodations and studio facilities to women artists from around the world. At The Farm, an expansive barn was dedicated primarily to screen printing.
