How forgotten is Kate Millett? When I stop by my local bookstore to pick up a copy of “Sexual Politics,” it doesn’t occur to me that I won’t find her seminal work, the one that all but launched the second wave of the women’s movement. It’s worth noting that this is not a chain, where a militant feminist author of the 1970s might not be missed. I go to an independent bookstore in a San Francisco neighborhood peopled by highly educated liberals. I’m directed to the women’s studies section and find a single shelf’s worth of oddly random titles that include Nancy Friday’s “Our Loves, Our Lives,” Germaine Greer’s “The Whole Woman” and, given the paltry selection, a hefty offering of books on menopause. I return to the front desk and ask a woman, in her mid-30s like me, if Millett might be located somewhere else, possibly in the nonfiction section? . . .
