This book analyses the two branches of the new feminist movement of the mid-1960s through 1973 and presents a theory of social movement origins, examines internal conflicts, and assesses the role of the press in movement growth. It also explores how the movment created public policy and how policy shaped the movement. "Up to now, nobody has been sure what the women's liberation movement is, we just know it is happening. Jo Freeman makes up for feminism's peculiar lact of political analysis." Nancy Borman, Majority Report
