In this enthralling narrative, Annelise Orleck chronicles the history of the American women's movement from the nineteenth century to the present. Starting with an incisive introduction that calls for a reconceptualization of American feminist history to encompass multiple streams of women's activism, she weaves the personal with the political, vividly evoking the events and people who participated in our era's most far-reaching social revolutions. In short, thematic chapters, Orleck enables readers to understand the impact of women's activism, and highlights how feminism has flourished through much of the past century within social movements that have too often been treated as completely separate. Showing that womena€™s activism has taken many forms, has intersected with issues of class and race, and has continued during periods of backlash, Rethinking American Womena€™s Activism is a perfect introduction to the subject for anyone interested in womena€™s history and social movements.In this enthralling narrative, Annelise Orleck chronicles the history of the American womena#39;s movement from the nineteenth century to the present.
