They didn't see us coming The hidden history of feminism in the nineties
Book - 2020
On January 21, 2017, massive demonstrations in Washington DC and sister marches held in over 600 American cities drew crowds of over four million people. Popularly called "The Women's March," it became the largest single-day protest in American history. Levenstein shows that the feminism that shaped the consciousness of millions in 2017 had distinct roots in the 1990s. She showcases voices and stories long overlooked by popular culture and scholars, showing that this decade was ac...tually a time of intense and international coalition building. -- adapted from publisher info
