...a book we should all be reading-younger women to find out that things haven't always been as they are today, and older women to find out what's been happening since we finished with the 70s and got on with our lives. The Beltrane Papers, Spring 2007 This thought provoking anthology-so wonderfully free of padding and jargon-manages to pack into just over 200 pages an overview of thirty years of feminist history as well as viewpoints of seventeen artists and scholars on current feminist issues. The many voices communicate a welcome diversity of thought...This reader found the anthology to be highly informative; its pages glow with positive energy. -- Dolores Mitchell, Professor of Art History, California State University, Chico Contributors from the book Women's Culture: The Women's Renaissance of the Seventies from 1981, also edited by Kimball, consider changes and progress made since the women's movement in art, music, literature, film, television, theater, religion, and organizations. Included among the 15 chapters are interviews with artist Judy Chicago, composer Kay Gardner, writer Robin Morgan, Z Budapest, and Dido Hasper. Six of the authors are new to this volume. Contributors are artists, writers, and scholars from the US. Kimball is a writer and former teacher of women's studies courses. Reference and Research Book News
