This fascinating study examines the changes in feminist organizations that were founded in the early 70s as alternatives to the traditional, bureaucratic human-service organizations. Through in-depth case studies, this book examines the life cycle of 15 feminist organizations and identifies, individually and collectively, various changes over ten or more years. The findings of this book reveal that over time these feminist organizations have evolved into bureaucratic structures that still retain their overarching feminist principles. Social scientists, gender / women's studies scholars, and those interested in the history of social movements will find this book an indispensable contribution to feminist literature.
