This introduction to the movement provides not only a narrative overview, but a also wealth of ready-reference materials, including 13 lengthy biographical profiles of key figures, a broad selection of 15 primary source documents, a glossary of terms, and a useful annotated bibliography. The womens liberation movement was an outgrowth of earlier waves of feminism, including the womens suffrage movement that gained women the right to vote in 1920. In a succession of chronologically organized chapters, Berkeley tells the tumultuous story of the movement from its historical roots through the present.Berkeley examines the background of the modern movement in the early 20th century, by detailing the stirrings and development of the movement in the 1960s, analyzing the key issues that defined the feminist agenda in the 1970s, and chronicling the growing backlash against feminism that reached its peak in the 1980s.

An epilogue offers an assessment of the impact of the movement on American society and the direction feminism may take in the 21st century. This narrative history and ready-reference guide to the movement will aid students in understanding this important movement in American life.
