When Everything Changed

When Everything Changed

A Keepsake Journal: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present

A Keepsake Edition of the national bestseller, now with space to preserve and share personal memories of the way things were.

When Everything Changed begins in 1960, when most American women had to get their husbands’ permission to apply for a credit card. A comprehensive mix of oral history and Gail Collins’s keen research–covering politics, fashion, popular culture, economics, sex, families, and work–When Everything Changed brings vividly to life five decades of cataclysmic transformation. It is a dynamic story, told with the down-to-earth, amusing, and agenda-free tone for which its author, a widely admired New York Times columnist, is renowned.

This special Keepsake Edition of the book is both for women who want to record their own recollections of decades past and for their daughters and granddaughters who may want to interview their elders for posterity–and to see their history in a rich new way.
