Susan Brownmiller, author of the ground-breaking Against Our Will and one of the leading thinkers and activists of the feminist movement, combines memoir, reportage, and history to illuminate her life’s work and the invaluable contributions of Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Germaine Greer, Kate Millett, and many others. In Our Time brings to life the sit-ins, speak-outs, underground collectives, consciousness-raising groups, and pathmaking lawsuits that have moved American society closer to equality for all. 368 pp.
"Riveting. Brownmiller conveys the electricity of feminist consciousness raising and the sense of empowerment that followed from the realization that 'the personal is political.' A lively and informative book that shows that sisterhood can indeed be powerful."
