This is a collection of memoirs from the second wave of American feminism. There are different perspectives of the priorities of the movement, and paints a vivid picture of the times.

I'm not as familiar with the labor movements of the earlier part of the century, where some of these women came out of. I want to learn more about that.

There is a lot in this book. There were some essays I didn't finish, because some of the stories became repetitive. While I appreciate the honesty of the writers, it started becoming exhausting, reading of how much in-fighting took place--that was a frequently recounted topic.
