Ger­maine Greer joins the thou­sands-strong wave of women parad­ing through Lon­don for the first Na­tional Women's Lib­er­a­tion Move­ment demon­stra­tion on 6 March 1970. The roads from Ox­ford Re­gion to Trafal­gar Square are filled with chants of "Free our sis­ters, free our­selves", as well as ban­ners and posters, in­clud­ing this one con­demn­ing the ob­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion of women's bod­ies. A year ear­lier, Greer had pub­lished her sem­i­nal book The Fe­male Eunuch, which had be­come an in­ter­na­tional best­seller and made the Aus­tralian a fig­ure­head of the fem­i­nist move­ment.
