Editorial Reviews


In Revolutionizing Expectations, Melissa Estes Blair traces the nuances of the women’s movement in cities far beyond the Northeast. This highly readable and thoughtfully researched book showcases how women made the movement in their own communities and reminds us of the value and importance of local histories in analyses of social movements. It belongs on the shelves of any person who wants to understand how and why grassroots feminism matters in the past and for the future. -- Stephanie Gilmore ― independent scholar and author of Groundswell: Grassroots Feminist Activism in Postwar America

Melissa Blair’s research combines primary and secondary sources, making excellent use of interviews with activists and archival materials. The book is well researched, clearly organized, and persuasively argued. -- Amy Higer ― H-Socialisms

Blair’s book focuses on liberal rather than radical activists, local rather than national agendas, and small cities rather than large urban centers. In doing so, she demonstrates that feminism was a larger and more diverse movement than many of us have believed it to be. . . . This book provides a valuable case study of the challenges of making women’s lives matter. -- Jennifer Scanlon ― Journal of American History

This study’s focus is on groups often overlooked by scholars of the feminist movement in areas not normally considered hotbeds of feminism. . . . Blair’s argument that scholars must look beyond a narrowly self-defined group of feminists when exploring women’s activism in the late twentieth century is a significant contribution to the growing body of literature that seeks to expand the definition of feminist activity. -- Megan Taylor Shockley ― American Historical Review
