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.
