“On the situations of women around the world today, this one book provides more illumination and insight than a dozen others combined. . . . Freedman’s survey is a triumph of global scope and informed precision.” –NANCY F. COTT Professor of History, Harvard University Repeatedly declared dead by the media, the women’s movement has never been as vibrant as it is today. Indeed as Stanford professor and award-winning author Estelle B. Freedman argues in her compelling book, feminism has reached a critical momentum from which there is no turning back. Freedman examines the historical forces that have fueled the feminist movement over the past two hundred years–and explores how women today are looking to feminism for new approaches to issues of work, family, sexuality, and creativity. Drawing examples from a variety of countries and cultures, from the past and the present, this inspiring narrative will be required reading for anyone who wishes to understand the role women play in the world. Searching in its analysis and global in its perspective, No Turning Back will stand as a defining text in one of the most important social movements of all time.

For the past twenty-five years,Estelle B. Freedman, a founder of the Program in Feminist Studies at Stanford University, has written about the history of women in the United States. Freedman is the author of two award-winning studies:Their Sisters’ Keepers: Women’s Prison Reform in America, 1830-1930andMaternal Justice: Miriam Van Waters and the Female Reform Tradition. Freedman coauthoredIntimate Matters: A History of Sexuality in America, which was aNew York TimesNotable Book. Professor Freedman lives in San Francisco. From the Hardcover edition.
