When hundreds gathered in 1970 for the first British women's liberation conference, a movement that had been gathering strength for years burst into a frenzy of radical action that was to transform the way we think, act, and feel. This collection of the Guardian's best articles and interviews is the ultimate portrait of an ongoing revolution. This anthology produces a strong, straightforward guide to feminism by a collection that works as an introduction to all the thinkers, ideas, debates, sisterhood, in-fighting and triumph that have marked the 40 years of feminism. The anthology traces the route from the feverish feminist campaigning of the early years, to Margaret Thatcher's rule, when solidarity and socialism were pushed to the margins. It takes in the alleged post-feminism of the 1990s, and the exciting, energetic activism of the present day.
