A Practical Guide to the Women's Movement.
Peterson, Deena, Ed.
An essay, a directory, a reading list, and consciousness-raising guidelines are intended to provide a vehicle for personal change and resources for organizational development. The guide begins with an essay on the women's movement today. A directory, which comprises the first major section of the guide, describes organizations which provide resources or services to women on a national level. General organizations and groups that deal with over 30 different women's issues, such as abortion, childcare, religion, rape, the media, and sports, are listed. The annotated reading list, which comprises the second major section of the guide, cites books and journal articles on a variety of topics. The categories of the directory and the reading list coincide as nearly as possible to facilitate research. The guide concludes with consciousness-raising guidelines for black women and for young women. An index is provided. (RM)
