When Everything Changed

When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, by Gail Collins.  Little, Brown, 2009.

Older women will recall much of the material covered, younger women may be reading it for the first time, but all ages will be amazed at how sexist our society was! Rather than just a compilation of facts, this history is told largely in the words of women who lived it, obtained by the author through dozens of interviews.
Although our society is not at perfect equality yet by any means, change has happened surprisingly quickly, considering that women have been oppressed for millennia. We women are fortunate to be living at the present time, able to leave behind so many of the restrictions our sisters faced in the past, even the recent past.
