Summary

"Weaving together ten years of archival research and interviews, Rosen turns the complicated history of the women's movement into a compelling and coherent narrative. The World Split Open challenges us to understand how the women's movement has forever altered our lives and why the revolution is far from over. This history will attract men and women, entice educators and students, beguile movement veterans, and captivate those who came of age in the wake of this revolution."--BOOK JACKET.
