In the Company of Women
Voices From the Women's Movement
Author Bonnie Watkins, Author Nina Rothchild, Foreword by Gloria Steinem
Minnesota Historical Society Press (August 15, 1996)
This is a collection of compelling and humorous personal stories told by 83 women, describing how they became feminists and how the women's movement changed forever the way they see themselves and the world around them.
Seeking to reveal the movement's humanity and diversity, activists Bonnie Watkins and Nina Rothchild recorded the accounts of homemakers and business owners, explorers and artists, factory workers and spiritual seekers, scientists and secretaries, prostitutes and policewomen. Encountering this company of women will change the way readers understand the movement that has transformed American life from the 1960s to the present.
"Like all good art, these stories start from a particular place and become universal. Women in all parts of the country--and in many other countries--will find themselves here. In the Company of Women affirms the importance of every woman's story. It affirms the power of hearing our own and each other's words unfiltered by interpretation. . . . We need this book and more like it." -- from the Foreword by Gloria Steinem
