Inside the Second Wave of Feminism
Boston Female Liberation, 1968-1972 An Account by Participants

A landmark account of a key radical feminist organization, offering lessons for today’s women’s liberation movement.

Activist members of the radical feminist organization Boston Female Liberation provide an inside account of the group’s history, strategy, and legacy in this compelling contribution to the historiography of Second Wave feminism.

Boston Female Liberation member Nancy Rosenstock expertly weaves together the reflections of her fellow-activists, describing how they became feminists, recounting the breadth of their organizing work, and linking their achievements and experience to contemporary struggles against gender-based oppression.

The book also includes ten radical feminist documents crucial to contextualizing the activity and thinking of the organization and its members.
