THE EQUIVALENTS A Story of Art, Female Friendship, and Liberation in the 1960s

by | Read by Rebecca Lowman

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Rebecca Lowman gives a masterful narration of this audiobook about art, friendship, and feminism. The work focuses on five women who were part of the Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study in 1960: poets Anne Sexton and Maxine Kumin, painter Barbara Swan, sculptor Mariana Pineda, and writer Tillie Olsen. Together, the women explore their personal ambitions and navigate the balance between work and home. The work provides an intimate look at the Institute and those involved while also addressing the challenges faced by these women and the changing social landscape of the time. Lowman's conversational tone provides the perfect match for the mix of personal stories and engaging profiles of the artists. Her passionate narration enhances the reflections on the feminist movement and the historically significant milestones addressed in the audiobook.
