Abstract:

A collection of compelling and humorous personal stories told by 83 women, describing how they became feminists and how the women's movement changed forever the way they see themselves and the world around them. Seeking to reveal the movement's humanity and diversity, activists Bonnie Watkins and Nina Rothchild recorded the accounts of homemakers and business owners, artists and explorers, factory workers and spiritual seekers, scientists and secretaries, prostitutes and policewomen. Encountering this company of women will change the way readers understand the movement that has transformed American life from the 1960s to the present.
