Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of a small group of feminist pioneers in the historical profession, Freedman in the past thirty years has produced a body of work in which scholarship and politics have never been mutually exclusive. This collection brings together eleven essays--eight previously published and three new--that document the evolving relationship between academic feminism and political feminism as Freedman has studied and lived it. Underlying the collection is an inquiry into the changing meanings of gender, sexuality, and politics during the 19th and 20th centuries along with a concern for applying the insights of women's history broadly, from the classroom to the courthouse.

Synopsis:

"Well-crafted and researched. . . . Provides readers with eleven widespread examples of feminism's perseverance and pertinence in a society that for decades has tried to squelch its progress."

Feminist Teacher "A scholarly collection that is important and powerful."

Elaine Tyler May, author of Homeward Bound: American Families in the Cold War Era
