This collection on women's community activism demonstrates the diversity of women's struggles against problems such as violence, homophobia and racism, housing, civil rights, economic security, educational equity and environmental justice. It focuses on the complex ways that gender, race ethnicity, culture, class and sexuality shape women's political consciousness and organizing in the USA. Offering an interdisciplinary perspective, the collection includes case studies of activism among lesbians, white European American women, Korean American and African American women, as well as Latinas and Native Americans.
