Discuss this intersection of the personal and the political in the music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

In 1969, the feminist author Carol Hanisch published an essay in which she coined the phrase “the personal is political.” Throughout the twentieth century, many composers and performers focused their attention on intense personal expression of their own national, social, and musical identities. Many of these expressions were direct responses to political realities, and others created new political realities of their own. Discuss this intersection of the personal and the political in the music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
