    In 1974, seven women from northeastern cities and suburbs pooled their resources and bought an abandoned resort on 23 acres of land in a remote area of the Adirondack Mountains—fifteen miles from Lake George. They lived collectively as feminists in their quest to experience a freedom devoid of constraints of a patriarchal society, calling their commune A Woman's Place. In their eight years of existence, approximately 75 women lived at A Woman's Place—four to ten at any one time. They hosted self-actualizing weekend retreats for over 1,000 guests through the years.
