"In this parable of how sensible and practical paths toward broader equality get overwhelmed by threat, fear, and bigotry, historian Spruill suggests that the current political landscape of paralyzing divisiveness, hateful rhetoric, and persistent obstructionism took form in 1977, when the two women's movements of the 1970's each side purporting to represent the majority or speak for "real" American women, came to a head at the National Women's Conference in Houston." - Publishers Weekly.
