Experiencing Second-Wave Feminism in the USA
Biklen, Sari; Marshall, Catherine; Pollard, Diane
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v29 n4 p451-469 Dec 2008
How has feminism mattered in the lives of particular academic feminists? Three scholars in education whose careers developed during the era of second-wave feminism describe how their personal and political stances were affected by theories, methodological advances, the milieus of academia as well as legal, and political events in the USA. The article relies on three narratives, a popular feminist form, to suggest how discourses of second-wave feminism imbued the work of these women. (Contains 3 notes.)
