Sexual revolution: definition, please

I've not been following recent dialogues closely, so I've surely missed
something, though I did read Jeff Apfel's "Sixties- is a great forum."
What's confusing me is Marc Gilbert's rebuttal to Jeff, the following
excerpt from which establishes a cause-effect relationstion between the
"sexual revolution" of the '60s and "women in positions of power" today.
Before I say anything else, let me just ask how you all--i.e., everybody
who's talked about it--are defining "the sexual revolution."
