Today’s women are so comfortable in their authority that they often forget to credit the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s and ’70s for paving the way — from the kitchen to the boardroom, from sexual harassment to self-defense, from cheerleading on the sidelines to playing center on the team. Distinguished scholars and active participants in the movement, Linda Gordon and Rosalyn Baxandall have collected a colorful array of documents — songs, leaflets, cartoons, position papers — that illustrate the range of people, places, organizations, and ideas that made up the movement. Dear Sisters chronicles historical change in such broad areas as health, work, and family, and captures the subtle humor, unceasing passion, and overwhelming diversity that defined the women’s liberation movement.
