Radical feminist writer Valerie Solanas attempted to assassinate artist Andy Warhol in June 1968. Warhol was seriously wounded in the attack. Doctors were forced to open his chest and massage his heart in order to keep him alive. The artist suffered physical effects for the rest of his life, and was required to wear a corset brace.
