by Florence Howe - £21.99 The Feminist Press (2011)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781558616974 | ISBN 10: 1558616977
Florence Howe has led an audacious life: she created a freedom school during the civil rights movement, refused to bow to academic heavyweights who were opposed to sharing power with women, and founded a feminist publishing house at a time when books for and about women were few. Sustained by her relationships with iconic writers like Grace Paley, Tillie Olsen, and Marilyn French, she traveled the world as an emissary for women’s empowerment.
Howe’s memoir spans her eighty years of personal struggle and professional triumphs.
