Kate Millett

Kate Millett (b. 1934, St. Paul, MN; d. 2017, Paris) lived a remarkable life as a public intellectual, artist, writer, human rights activist, and scholar. Although she became best known as the author of the controversial bestseller Sexual Politics (1970), she described herself simply as a sculptor who writes. Millett left a legacy of greatly honored achievements in art, literature, and equal rights for women.
