A landmark volume showcasing the vital writing of revolutionary women during the 1930s. This comprehensive collection of fiction, poetry, and report-age by revolutionary women lays to rest the charge that feminism disappeared after 1920. Among the thirty- six writers are Muriel Rukeyser, Margaret Walker, Josephine Herbst, Tillie Olsen, Tess Slesinger, Agnes Smedley, and Meridel Le Sueur. Other voices may be new to readers, including many working- class Black and white women. Topics covered range from sexuality and family relation-ships, to race, class, and patriarchy, to party politics. Toni Morrison writes that the anthology is “peopled with questioning, caring, socially committed women writers.”
