The Feminist Memoir Project free pdf "The Feminist Memoir Project has put back in the historical record dozens of urgent voices that were on the verge of being lost forever. What a fascinating, vital-and vitally important book."-Katha Pollitt The women of The Feminist Memoir Project give voice to the spirit, the drive, and the claims of the Women's Liberation Movement they helped shape, beginning in the late 1960s. These thirty-two writers were among the thousands to jump-start feminism in the late twentieth century. Here, in pieces that are passionate, personal, critical, and witty, they describe what it felt like to make history, to live through and contribute to the massive social movement that transformed the nation. What made these particular women rebel? And what experiences, ideas, feelings, and beliefs shaped their activism? How did they maintain the will and energy to keep such a struggle going for so long, and continuing still? Memoirs and responses by Kate Millett, Vivian Gornick, Michele Wallace, Alix Kates Shulman, Joan Nestle, Jo Freeman, Yvonne Rainer, Barbara Smith, Ellen Willis, Eve Ensler, Shirley Geok-lin Lim, Roxanne Dunbar, Naomi Weisstein, Alice Wolfson and many more embody the excitement that fueled the movement and the conflicts that threatened it from within. Their stories trace the ways the world has changed. Rachel Blau DuPlessis is a professor of English and women's studies at Temple University and lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ann Snitow is a professor of literature and gender studies at The New School for Social Research and lives in New York City.
