Résumé
"This book chronicles the influence of Second-Wave Feminism on everything from electoral politics to LGBTQ rights. The original descriptions of Second-Wave Feminism focused on elite, white voices, obscuring the accomplishments of many activists, as Third-Wave feminists rightly criticized. Those limited narratives also prematurely marked the end of the movement, imposing an imaginary timeline on what is a continuous struggle for women's rights. Within the chapters of this volume, scholars provide a more complex description of Second-Wave Feminism, in which the sustained efforts of women from many races, classes, sexual orientations, and religious traditions in the fight for equality have had a long-term impact on American politics. These authors argue that even the "Second Wave" metaphor is incomplete, and should be replaced by a broader, more inclusive metaphor that accurately depicts the overlapping and extended battle waged by women activists. With the gift of hingsight and the awareness of the limitations of and backlash to this "Second Wave," the time is right to reflect on the feminist cause in America and to chart its path forward'" (ed.)
