Documenting key feminists who ignited the second wave women's movement

Barbara J. Love’s Feminists Who Changed America, 1963-1975 will be the first comprehensive directory to document many of the founders and leaders (including both well-known and grassroots organizers) of the second wave women's movement. It tells the stories of more than two thousand individual women and a few notable men who together reignited the women's movement and made permanent changes to entrenched customs and laws.

The biographical entries on these pioneering feminists represent their many factions, all parts of the country, all races and ethnic groups, and all political ideologies. Nancy Cott's foreword discusses the movement in relation to the earlier first wave and presents a brief overview of the second wave in the context of other contemporaneous social movements.

The Biography for Judith Benninger Brown is grossly conflated with the stories of other womyn named Brown, which was actually Judith Benninger's married name. Her scholarship on Zora Neale Hurston was among the first notice given to the author. She co-wrote one of the founding texts of 20th Century radical feminism. I am proud to say i got to know her well, and studied with her. She was a mentor and a leader of feminism's continued march into the 21st Century. (I write this as Epstein, and now Weinstein, but not* PussyGrabber-stein, have been convicted of their crimes against womanhood.)
