Reviews

`Groundswell is an important contribution to the growing body of scholarship that focuses on the women's movement at the local level...By focusing on NOW at the local level, Gilmore persuasively demonstrates that even within the marquee organization of the second wave, feminism was always a complex, multifacetedmovement driven by the desires and needs of women in each local organization.' - Melissa Estes Blair, Warren Wilson College 'Groundswell shifts our attention away from a nationally focused narrative about feminism in the 1960s and seventies-since this tends to focus on leaders, texts, and legislative accomplishments-and toward the often-unexplored yet countless ways that feminist activists around the country challenged discriminatory institutions and practices in their communities...[and] by making visible the grassroots activism that transformed cities across the country, Groundswell makes a valuable contribution to that past.' - Amy Kesselman, Women's Review of Books 'With Groundswell, Gilmore has produced an interesting work of comparative analysis that demonstrates the important role of "location" in shaping feminist agendas and shines a spotlight on the rank-and-file women who sustained the movement over the course of its inevitable ebbs and flows.' - Babette Faehmel, Schenectady County Community College
