Summary
"In 1977, the federal government funded 56 state and territorial meetings and a national conference in Houston, Texas designed to assess the concerns of American women. This dissertation argues that the IWY fundamentally altered American feminism, the conservation backlash against it, local, state, and national politics, and the lives of those who participated."
