In Her Own Words is Conway's distillation of women's experience from the British Commonwealth world she came from, compared with major themes in women's lives in the United States, which is now her home. We learn how the world of politics and the private self intersect in the four offshoots of the old British world, and see how these women have made a difference--by their honesty, their struggle for self-knowledge and autonomy, and by the power of their writing. Contributor's include: Patricia Adam-Smith, Lillian Hellman, Rosemary Brown, Dorothy Hewett, Kim Chernin, Robin Hyde, Shirley Chisholm, Dorothy Livesay, Lauris Edmond, Sally Morgan, Janet Frame, and Gabrielle Roy.
