In this follow-up to Women's Culture: The Women's Renaissance of the 70s, editor Gayle Kimball and more than 15 distinguished contributors (including novelist and poet Marge Piercy and artist Judy Chicago) assess women's culture in the 21st century. This new volume reveals how these creative women have changed over the last decades and how they've influenced young third wave feminists.
Gayle Kimball was a pioneering coordinator of Women's Studies at California State University, Chico. She is the author or editor of 11 books, including Women's Culture: The Women's Renaissance of the Seventies (Scarecrow, 1981).
