From Flashbak:

We’re celebrating Meryl Meisler and her five-decade career as a photographer, which began in 1973. We see Meryl’s work from her early years in suburban Long Island pugatory to hanging out in the clubs of topless dancers and bottomless drinks in 1970s Manhattan, to days teaching the overlooked in pre-gentrified Bushwick, to the present, where Meryl is focusing once more on night life and new self-portraits.

Her pictures show us life lived at ramming speed. And here we focus on some of her photographs of women in New York City – the women living it large in an era shaped by safe, affordable and effective birth control, the feminist movement – hail to the campaigners and the ones who did – co-operation, free self-expression and equality.
