This lively collection highlights the remarkable diversity of U. S. women's struggles from the early 1800s to the present. Bringing together articles originally published in the journal Feminist Studies, which from its inception has sought to link scholarship to activism, the volume reflects on the ways women have organized, the conditions that have discouraged or encouraged their organizing, and the significance of race, class, ethnicity, religion, age, and sexual orientation, as well as gender, for their struggles.
