The American women's movement has been shrouded in myths, argue three leading scholars in this bold and revisionist history. Also challenging the contemporary "lean-in," trickle-down feminist philosophy and asserting that women's histories all too often depoliticize politics, labor issues, and divergent economic circumstances, Dorothy Sue Cobble, Linda Gordon, and Astrid Henry demonstrate that the post-Suffrage women's movement focused on exploitation of women in the workplace as well as on inherent sexual rights.

The real surprise is that the authors believe that the United States no longer serves as a world leader when it comes to gender equality and that the future of feminism may be global rather than American. The women’s liberation movement also educated further generations through women’s studies programs, books, manifestos and magazines.

Feminism Unfinished: A Short, Surprising History of American Women's Movements by Dorothy Sue Cobble; Linda Gordon; Astrid Henry and Publisher Liveright.

The American women’s movement has been shrouded in myths, argue three leading scholars in this bold and revisionist history.

Eschewing the conventional wisdom that places the origins of the American women’s movement in the nostalgic glow of the late 1960s, Feminism Unfinished traces the beginnings of this seminal American social movement to the 1920s, in the process creating an expanded, historical narrative that dramatically rewrites a century of American women’s history. Also challenging the contemporary “lean-in,” trickle-down feminist philosophy and asserting that women’s histories all too often depoliticize politics, labor issues, and divergent economic circumstances, Dorothy Sue Cobble, Linda Gordon, and Astrid Henry demonstrate that the post-Suffrage women’s movement focused on exploitation of women in the workplace as well as on inherent sexual rights. The authors carefully revise our “wave” vision of feminism, which previously suggested that there were clear breaks and sharp divisions within these media-driven “waves.” Showing how history books have obscured the notable activism by working-class and minority women in the past, Feminism Unfinished provides a much-needed corrective. 20 illustrations

I heard the three authors on C-SPAN 2 November 1st and was impressed by their vast knowledge, spirited commitment, and eloquence. Their book is truly indispensable. It helps the reader understand the complexity and vital importance of feminism. It celebrates the gains made and makes clear the liberation of women from male domination in this country and throughout the world has a long way to go. Ordered the book on Amazon and received it the next day, Sunday, November 2nd. Don't be put off by the garish jacket design. The book is well bound, contains helpful pictures and illustrations, and has a splendid color photo of the engaging authors. It is indexed and has a helpful list of books for further reading.

Well written. Very interesting.

Substantial work, well documented and the full picture of the women's liberation movement; some turns and twists found nowhere that I've been able to find that offer a richer and more profound experience of that part of our history.

Good book!
Little Devil
Tells a complex story well and makes corrections to current perceptions of feminism. But the writing is often awkward, flatfooted, and rather preachy. Gordon's section is the best and the best-written but even her section is surprisingly pedestrian if one knows how analytically rich her other books are.

was good

It's a feminist movement book but very one sided.
