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.

This collection of primary sources from the 1970's Women's Liberation movement is made up of work that was first available through the underground press as mimeographed flyers, pamphlets or articles. The editors were participants in the movement: Baxandall was a member of New York Radical Women and Gordon was involved with the socialist organization Bread and Roses out of Boston. Their introductory essay offers a useful theoretical outline for looking at this period of women's history that addresses relevant issues of culture and the underground press explicitly. Works are cited in their original form as much as possible but there is no extensive bibliography or detailed information on the original publications themselves. It is noted that the editors did extensive research in private collections to get their material, so this is unfortunate. ( )
