This is a short but comprehensive look at the evolution and maturing of Feminism in the United States. It covers and defines the waves of feminism from seeking the vote to seeking autonomy over our own bodies to finally seeking justice in whatever sphere in which it is lacking for women, men and children. I must commend Rory Dicker for including such a wealth of information in such a short book. A History of US Femisms has been of great assistance to me since starting to teach Gender and Women's Studies at Le Moyne College. I look forward to reading her next books.

Format: Paperback
Cory Dicker has written a gem of a history of the various women's movements in the US. It's a perfect introductory text for those unfamiliar with the topic, and great for students in lower level classes. She manages to squeeze in all the main figures and issues as well as topics often relegated to the sidelines by other authors. I especially like that she tackles the question of feminism's continuing usefulness, and answers that question by looking at the accomplishments of the women's movements and work yet to be done. The last, brief chapter will be of especial interest for today's young women wondering what's left to do. Highly recommend!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this for a class. Of all the feminist books I've read, this one seemed very approachable and easy to read. If you're completely new to actual feminism, it does a good job of helping you step outside yourself and understand the history of oppression that spurred on different waves. If you're more familiar, this book helps to solidify your historical understanding somewhat, and can be a nice refresher. My only complaint is that I wish there were citations and book recommendations; I kept finding myself wanting to know more and being unsure of where to look. Still, it's a fine introductory work.

This is a must read for all women and men. It talks about the people, organization and events that have shaped the modern suffrage movement and modern feminism. It talks about how far we have come and where we are going. As unapologetic liberals, my wife and I find the book educational and inspiring about a subject that should be common sense. That it isn't is a strong indictment of the hypocrisy of the American people and its leaders.

Interesting, informative, entertaining and well written. Reads like a novel rather than a textbook. I learned a lot about women's history without ever feeling bored or overwhelmed.

I read this book for my women's studies college class. It was an assigned book. It gave a thorough history of the feminist movements.
