really liked it

Very good history and the book I'd recommend to someone who knows little about the women's movement. If you are familiar with the history of second wave this won't tell you much that's new, but it's a good, readable and important book.

I'm looking for information about feminism and the women's movement in rural areas (states like Maine, Iowa, Arkansas, etc). If anyone can recommend books/websites/articles I'd appreciate it.

Susan B. Stephanie,

I read this book several years ago and liked it. I was considering it for use in an intro class, but decided that it was probably a bit too detailed for that purpose.
