Description

These forty-eight powerful stories and poems etch in vivid detail the breakthrough moments experienced by women during the life-changing era that was the '60s and '70s. And finally, here, they tell it like it was. Their stories range from Vietnam to France, from Chile to England, from the Haight-Ashbury to Greenwich Village, and from the Deep South to the Midwest. They write of cultural reverberations that reached into farm kitchens and city "pads," from coffeehouse jazz clubs to psychedelic rock concerts. This inspiring collection celebrates the women of the '60s and '70s, reminds them of the importance of their legacy, and seeks to motivate young women today.
