Offering an interdisciplinary perspective, the collection includes case studies of activism among lesbians, white European American women, Korean American and African American women, as well as Latinas and Native Americans. Contributors include: Sharon Bays, Karen Brodkin, Sharon Cotrell, Cheryl Townsend Gilkes, Terry Haywoode, Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, Sally Ward Maggard, Mary Pardo, Leila Rupp, Verta Taylor, Judith Wittner and Patricia A.
