This is an informative and well-researched comparative history of the simultaneous rise of three feminist movements in the U.S. It richly catalogues the struggles unique to each group of women especially in terms of working with or separate from activist men. This is also a great work to enter into the conversation around the criticism of Second Wave feminism as exclusionary in its white upper/middle class bias.

An important sociological study of the feminist movement and how it manifested among white, black, and Chicana women. While a little hard to read in places, this book fills a significant gap in our knowledge of how the various feminisms originated.
