From the Inside Flap

"Leading the Way" is a collection of personal essays written by twenty-one young, hopeful American women who describe their work, activism, leadership, and efforts to change the world. It responds to critical portrayals of this generation of "twenty-somethings" as being disengaged and apathetic about politics, social problems, and civic causes. Contributors reflect on controversial issues such as gay marriage, gender, racial profiling, war, immigration, poverty, urban education, and health care reform in a post-9/11 era. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book of essays by young women who became involved in various kinds of activism through a women's leadership program at Rutgers University. I currently use this book as a secondary text in my Community Organizing class in an undergraduate social work program. It's not easy to find compelling stories of activists for the current generation, but this book presents fascinating and moving stories of individual journeys to social awareness and involvement. My students are inspired and energized by these essays -- they love the book and I heartily recommend it.
