Availability: Ready to download

Today, feminism is as important as ever. Betty Friedan’s musings, “to take the actions needed to bring women into the mainstream of American society, now; full equality for women, in fully equal partnership with men,” still hold fervently true in current society. Young readers still fighting for equality today need to know how the movement began years ago, with such basics Today, feminism is as important as ever. Betty Friedan’s musings, “to take the actions needed to bring women into the mainstream of American society, now; full equality for women, in fully equal partnership with men,” still hold fervently true in current society. Young readers still fighting for equality today need to know how the movement began years ago, with such basics as the right to vote, the right to birth control, and the right to equal employment. Leading historian Jules Archer’s account offers fascinating biographies of Susan B. Anthony, Margaret Sanger, and Betty Friedan, with a full background of the political organizations they worked for and against. Forty-four percent of general American history books do not even mention the struggle for women’s suffrage, and 65 percent fail to record the name of Susan B. Anthony. Even more young readers have never heard the names of Margaret Sanger and Betty Friedan. As far as most of these books are concerned, women are invisible in American history. But these women dared to defy convention, at great personal risk, for the cause of sexual and gender equality. Their stories must be remembered. With a new foreword by feminist author Naomi Wolf, The Feminist Revolution relies heavily on letters, diaries, and other personal forms of communication to tell the story of women’s rights in this country. Part of Sky Pony Press’s revitalization of the Jules Archer History for Young Readers, series, this book is a must-read introduction to the Feminist Revolution for all young adults.

    I enjoyed learning more about Susan Anthony, Margaret Sanger, and Betty Friedan in this well written and well documented book. We owe a huge thanks to them for tirelessly and bravely revolting against the thinking, attitudes, and laws of their day. Even more action is needed to bring full equality to women and to have fully equal partnerships with men, but we wouldn't be anywhere near as close to that today without their work. Their work should be included in every American History textbook. I enjoyed learning more about Susan Anthony, Margaret Sanger, and Betty Friedan in this well written and well documented book.

    Read this in honor of the 100 year anniversary of the 19th amendment. The book was a hard read, primarily because of the animosity and push back that these women had to deal with in order to give a voice to women and allow us to be seen. We are not second class. We are not property. We are not a means to an end (simply relegated as child bearers/carers). We are not a footnote in history. Do I agree with all of the approaches to get to where we are right now? No, but change is messy and I am thankf Read this in honor of the 100 year anniversary of the 19th amendment.

Starting with Susan B. Anthony, the book reveals how women struggled to attain the vote from the mid 18th century up until its enactment in 1920. Anthony was a trailblazer that defied classical feminine stereotypes by being rebellious and unrelenting in her fight for both the abolitionist movement and the women’s suffrage. Margret Sanger is also shown as a prominent figure in women’s rights. Through h Jules Archer does a great job at showcasing three prominent pioneers of the women’s revolution. Starting with Susan B. Anthony, the book reveals how women struggled to attain the vote from the mid 18th century up until its enactment in 1920. Anthony was a trailblazer that defied classical feminine stereotypes by being rebellious and unrelenting in her fight for both the abolitionist movement and the women’s suffrage. Margret Sanger is also shown as a prominent figure in women’s rights. Through her fight with Comstock laws and widely dispersed contraceptives, Sanger lead the way in allowing women to take back power in family planning. Sanger was also an integral part in helping countries around the world slow their population growth to account for limited resources. Her unrelenting fight for wide spread information on birth control helped women and families of all statuses plan for their family’s future. The final figure shown is Betty Friedan, who is popularly know for her book The Feminine Mystique. Her work to break down the stereotypical portrayal of women allowed many to feel empowered in the workplace and envision a life outside of homemaking. Friedan was active in the National Organization for Women which advocated for women’s rights in the workplace, in the right to choose, and other causes of the women’s liberation movement. Friedan stood as a powerful reminder that women and minorities should not be treated as second class citizens and that women’s rights were human rights. The book shows where the women’s movement is heading and the progress that has been made as well as the hurdles that must still be overcome. It puts in perspective the rights given to women in countries all around the world and the work that the U.S. and other countries have still to conquer. The book is great for young and older women (and men) who would like to know more about where our rights have come from and the people we have to thank for them.

    Fascinating to see what sacrifices were made by these women so that today women in America have more choices and more rights.
