For American women, the struggle to win equality has been long and difficult. And the struggle continues. But incredible progress has been made. Much of the credit goes to feminists who refused to accept second-class status because of their gender. This book examines the three historical waves of the American feminist movement. It details the goals and achievements of each wave. It also profiles some of the pioneering women who shattered stereotypes and found success through talent, hard work, and determination.
