Feminism unfinished - a short, surprising history of American women's movements by Cobble, Dorothy Sue, author.

Feminism unfinished - a short, surprising history of American women's movements

In this bold, revisionist history, three leading scholars of women's history provide the first concise history of American women's movements over the nearly hundred years since women gained the right to vote. They eschew the popular--though incomplete--narrative focusing on the 1960s and 1970s, and trace the world-changing social movement to the 1920s. This broader canvas allows for the struggles of all women, including working-class women, to come to the foreground. Among the many myths the boo
