Feminism Unfinished


Feminism Unfinished


Eschewing the conventional wisdom that places the origins of the American women’s movement in the nostalgic glow of the late 1960s, Feminism Unfinished: A Short, Surprising History of American Women’s Movements traces the beginnings of this seminal American social movement to the 1920s, creating an expanded narrative that dramatically rewrites a century. Also challenging the contemporary feminist philosophy, authors Dorothy Sue Cobble, Linda Gordon, and Astrid Henry carefully revise our “wave” vision of feminism, showing how history books have obscured the notable activism by working-class and minority women in the past. Hardcover, 288 pages, 20 illustrations.
