From Library Journal:

The women's liberation movement that began in 1967 is an absorbing study in political struggle. Radical women rejecting male dominance also rejected conventional political and organizational techniques. Their consciousness raised, they scrutinized each step, each meeting, each action, seeking theory and political practice untainted by patriarchal or hierarchical elements. Echols traces the volatile history of this movement, explaining clearly the positions of the various groups, the reasons for splintering and division, the controversies. She shows how ideas emerged that have changed American attitudes and assumptions. If we are still debating the relative importance of gender, class, and race, combating the power of capitalism and patriarchy, this valuable study shows that the discussion owes much to the radical feminists who hewed out the outlines of these issues.

Book Description University of Minnesota Press, United States, 1990. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, radical feminism was the most dynamic force within the women's movement. Yet, in the more than twenty years since the emergence of contemporary feminism, there has been no book-length study of this branch of the movement. "Daring to be bad" fills this void. In it, Alice Echols traces the trajectory of the radical feminist movement from its beleaguered beginnings in 1967, through its ascendance as the dominant tendency within the movement, to its decline and eventual supplantation by cultural feminism and liberal feminism in the mid-seventies. Combining intellectual and social history with collective biography, Echols provides both a historical and theoretical analysis of radical feminism. Her text carefully situates radical feminism within 1960s radicalism, illuminating the ways in which it was intellectually indebted to the black freedom movement and the new left. Echols also relates radical feminism to past feminist struggles, and suggests that there are recurrent tensions within American feminism: feminism's relationship to other social change movements; women's differences from one another; sexuality -- whether it should be conceptualized primarily as a site of pleasure or of danger; and, finally, the meaning of feminism itself -- whether it entails the transcendence of gender or the celebration of female difference. "Alice Echols is a visiting Assistant Professor of History at the University of Arizona at Tucson. Ellen Willis is s Staff Writer at the "Village Voice" and the author of "Beginning to see the light", a collection of essays on culture and politics. Seller Inventory # AAJ9780816617876
