About this title


A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.\n\nBook by Sochen, June \n\nThe experience of those feminists who lived in New York's Greenwich Village during the 1910's suggests at least two larger perspectives: first, it symbolizes the "new woman" who emerged in the early part of this century -- a woman who left the home for the factory, a career, and the marketplace; second, it illustrates the dilemma of the cultural reformer in American society. Feminists wanted a wholesale revolution in American values and in the social and economic structure of American life. They rejected modest goals for ambitious ones. But, being Americans, they used a reformer's methods. The difficulties that resulted from the conflict of radical aims and reformer means are recounted in the following pages.
