Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sociologists Ferree and Hess have substantially revised their 1985 work (G.K. Hall) by incorporating new research and updating statistics. The bibliography has doubled in size, and a useful chronology of the new feminist movement from 1963 to early 1993 has been appended. After setting the historical context, the authors describe at length the three most recent decades of the women's movement. They also document the many strands of feminism, the internal tensions, and the cooperative interaction among women's organizations. Despite well-publicized resistance to feminism (including anti-ERA and antiabortion sentiments and the feminist backlash) and the work left to be done before equity is achieved, the authors remain optimistic about the future and confident that the women's movement will continue to evolve and effect change in public policy. An important work for public and academic libraries.-Patricia A. Beaber, Trenton State Coll. Lib., N.J.
Provides an overview of the American women's movement from the 1960s to the 1990s. Ferree (sociology, women's studies, U. of Connecticut) and Hess (sociology, County College of Morris) describe the diversity of contemporary feminism's multiple constituencies and ideological positions, tracing areas of conflict and consolidation. This revised edition features new chapters covering the period from 1982 to the present, and closes with an assessment of the achievements of the New Feminist Movement and the potential for further changes in the new millennium. Includes numerous b&w photos and a chronology of major events. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
