BUREAU OF LOST CULTURE: Women, Sex, Counterculture (19/06/2022)
The Sexual Revolution? Yes. Liberation? Maybe. Penis Envy? I think not.
Youth culture in the sixties was progressive in so many ways but when it came to the relations between the sexes, it was perhaps much more traditional than it liked to admit.
Sleeping around, Syd Barret, Pink Floyd, Groupies, Frigidity, the Pill, abortion, Oz magazine and of course The Female Eunuch make their appearance as we dig deep into what it was like growing up as a woman in swinging sixties London
Jill Drower author of the incredible ‘The Exploding Galaxy: Performance Art, LSD and Bent Coppers in the Sixties Counterculture’ returns to the Bureau along with beat traveller, model and singer Jenny Spires as we ask if the story of counterculture has largely been one told by men about men.
