Feminism in the Heartland tells the story of second-wave feminism. Set in a "typical" American city, Dayton, Ohio, it traces the history of a dynamic, utopian movement that transformed the lives of thousands of women who fought to make their city and country responsive to women's needs. Life stories of fifty-eight activists, woven throughout, give voice to the subjects themselves and transmit to younger generations a feel for what it was like to be a feminist in the 1970s.

Judith Ezekiel is associate professor of American Studies at l' Universite de Toulouse-le-Mirail.Review:
"Judith Ezekiel writes with clarity and force. She traces in detail the origin and development of a number of women's groups in Dayton, without losing sight of the larger issues. She is constantly aware of the way the problems of the whole American society impinge on the feminist movement, and on the women she is writing about: the problems of race and class, and the difficulties of bringing together different tendencies in the movement."
Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
"Judith Ezekiel's excellent new study of Feminism in the Heartland shows us that the women's liberation movement was a force to be reckoned with, not only on "the coasts," but throughout American society. Her careful study of the rise of modern feminism in Dayton, Ohio, illuminates a great deal about this history-changing movement, the unfolding consequences of which continue to shape women's lives and choices today."
Ellen Carol DuBois, UCLA, author of Harriot Stanton Blatch and the Winning of Woman Suffrage
"Judith Ezekiel's scholarship is impeccable. This is a deeply researched book that manages to give voice to multiple perspectives of participants (many of whom differed with each other deeply) without ducking the necessity of building a clear analysis. I have no doubt that it will find an important place in classrooms in all of these areas -- U.S. women's history, feminism, and social movements -- because it is such an excellent case study."
Sara Evans, Distinguished McKnight Professor of History, University of Minnesota
