Focusing on 1950-1980, June Benowitz explores the development of the right-wing women's movements in the United States by analyzing differences and continuities between the generations of conservative activists. Benowitz particularly seeks to understand the ways in which grassroots members of the Old Right responded to the political, cultural, and social ideologies of Baby Boomer youth by constructing a thematic framework covering major issues taken up be woman such as education, health, morals, war, and patriotism.
