Times They Were A-Changing: Women Remember the ’60s & ’70s

timestheywereachangingTo the women who were there, and remember. To the women who were not, and wish they were.”
These forty-eight powerful stories and poems etch in vivid detail the breakthrough moments experienced by women during the life-changing era that was the ’60s and ’70s. These women rode the sexual revolution with newfound freedom, struggled for identity in divorce courts and boardrooms, and took political action in street marches. They pushed through boundaries, trampled taboos, and felt the pain and joy of new experiences. And finally, here, they tell it like it was.

From Vietnam to France, from Chile to England, from the Haight-Ashbury to Greenwich Village, and to the Deep South and Midwest, Times They Were A-Changing recalls the cultural reverberations that reached into farm kitchens and city “pads” alike—and in doing so, it celebrates the women of the ’60s and ’70s, reminding them of the importance of their legacy.

This marvelous anthology shows the vital role outrider women played in changing our world–often overlooked, they were the heart of the ’60s revolution. ”

~ Brenda Knight, author of Women of the Beat Generation: The Writers, Artists and Muses at the Heart of a Revolution

Times They Were A-Changing is the book long missing from the packed second wave feminism shelf. Finally, the women you never heard from are speaking in their own powerful voices about how each in her own way and in places you might never imagine pushed America toward greater equality and justice. If you are a woman over a certain age, you will find yourself in this book’s stories. If you are a woman of any other age, you will find your own story informed and enriched by these beautifully written, honest, and evocative essays.”

~ Gloria Feldt, Co-Founder and President of Take the Lead, Author, No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power, former President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America

    Reblogged this on Not Just Sassy on the Inside and commented:
    So glad to see this… The last couple of years I’ve often been thinking about how we struggled to create a new way of thinking and being. Wondering how it’s devolved into women embracing the role of sex object like never before… Look forward to reading this book! Thanks to Nadine for the heads up!
