Summary
"Many of the most famous faces of the civil rights movement were men, but women played a very large part in the fight for equal rights. Largely ignored by historians as well as by their male contemporaries, it is only relatively recently that the women who helped make the civil rights movement possible have come into the spotlight. Through annotated quotes, historical photographs, and in-depth sidebars, this volume shares the stories of the courageous women who defied the gender stereotypes of their era and fought alongside men to achieve social change on a never-before-seen scale."--
