CHOICE Review

Within a framework of resource mobilization, Ryan provides a succinct analysis of women's movements within the US. The research is based on participant-observation, oral history, and documentation of formal organizations for women's liberation activities, starting with a summary of suffrage activities from the opening decades of this century through movement resurgence in the 1960s and into the 1980s. Ryan's analysis balances the concerns of structural characteristics of movements with emotional and ideological meanings. She does not thoroughly examine the resources used by feminist organizations, but does well describing the complexity of the movement. There are problematic implicit judgments of the efficacy of positions and strategies, e.g., lesbian separatism or civil disobedience, in relation to the formal legal and public struggles. Still, Ryan is attentive to the multiple meanings within the movement and to the conflicts that have troubled and renewed women's activities. A useful book for women's studies, and a source and example for sociologists and political scientists. General; advanced undergraduate; graduate; professional. J. L.
