Claudine Dannequin and Marysia Lewandowska; Paris; 5/7/86

Dannequin and Lewandowska discuss Dannequin's involvement in French Second Wave Feminism and the need for the activist movement to switch strategies. Dannequin's political activities ranged from diarist, film maker and curator of interdisciplinary exhibitions, all designed to spread the feminist message.

Dannequin began to distance herself from the French Feminist movement approximately five years before this conversation, and here she discusses the seminal moments which informed this decision, including Simone de Beauvoir's funeral. Both women agree that the feminist question is still relevant for today's generation, but with the rules of engagement shifting, the line of attack must be re-assessed.
