Social Justice Movements
Organized thematically, the first of the three main units focuses on historical narratives. The second addresses traditional protest movements, and the third is devoted to the impact of individual citizens on revolutionary social change, which is rooted in Betty Friedan's seminal work The Feminist Mystique, and its view of the personal as deeply political.
Social Justice Movements enhances discussions on the difference between a theoretical framework of governance and the reality experienced by those on the periphery of society. The anthology is an inspiring addition to courses in political science, political history, or social justice.
