Booklist Reviews 2014 July #1

Three professors wade deeply into twentieth-century history to provide readers with an approachable overview of the period's activism spearheaded by American women. They also move beyond the more recognizable marquee names to shed light on lesser-known working-class and minority figures. From sexism to labor law to cultural awareness, the case is made that not only was the women's movement dominated by middle-class perspectives but all too often "white feminists were oblivious to the depth and strength of racism in the United States." Using examples drawn from Hispanic, Native American, African American, and other ethnic groups, the authors present leaders who fought to have their experiences acknowledged and valued within the larger movement they championed. While not everyone will agree with some of the opinions expressed here, the authors do succeed in moving many relatively unknown women into deserved positions of respect. By showing the importance of feminism to so many women of the past, this is a solid push back against the modern reticence to embrace the term and its continued relevance.

PW Reviews 2014 June #3

Dividing their history into three periods and covering one each, scholars Cobble, Gordon, and Henry (professors at Rutgers, NYU, and Grinnell College respectively) examine the multiple strains of American feminism. Featuring lesser-known activists, they show that the movement has always had leaders who recognized the importance of race and class in relation to women's issues as well as the diversity of what it means to be female. Cobble takes on the post-suffrage period, Gordon tackles the "women's liberation" of the late 1960s though the 1980s, and Henry covers the period from the 1990s through the present. The authors assert that the work of feminism is not yet finished, and that the new wave of predominantly white, Ivy League–educated, and Internet-savvy feminists must listen to the diverse voices around them. The book's stories of the broader variety of feminist organizations offer useful perspectives for today's feminists: you did not invent this; your mothers did not get it all wrong; you are not done; and this might still take a while. 20 illus.
