The women's liberation movement is one of the most successful social movements of the twentieth century. Most writing about it, however, has focused on the issues it has addressed rather than the practices, ideology, organizations, and strategies of the movement itself. Feminist Organizing For Change fills this gap by documenting and analyzing the struggle of the contemporary Canadian women's movement to make change. Beginning with a detailed history of the 'second wave' (post-1960), it makes a primary distinction between grass-roots and institutionalized feminism, and by emphasizing the former reveals a part of feminist organizing that has most often been invisible. From a historical and theoretical grounding, the authors develop a conceptual framework for understanding feminist practice, which then informs an exploration both of feminist organizing and organizations, and of the ideology of the womens movement. The book concludes with an extensive bibliography and a selection of previously unpublished documents on the Canadian women's movement.
