Barbara J. Lovea€™s Feminists Who Changed America, 1963-1975 is the first comprehensive directory to document many of the founders and leaders (including both well-known and grassroots organizers) of the second wave womena€™s movement. It tells the stories of more than two thousand individual women and a few notable men who together reignited the womena€™s movement and made permanent changes to entrenched customs and laws. The biographical entries on these pioneering feminists represent their many factions, all parts of the country, all racesand ethnic groups, and all political ideologies. Nancy F. Cotta€™s foreword discusses the movement in relation to the earlier first wave and presents a brief overview of the second wave in the context of other contemporaneous social movements.In addition to her work as a founder of the group, Harden was one of the authors of a€œA Historical and Critical Essay for Black ... for the birth of her fourth child, Harder challenged the Board of Regents, which led to the overturn of that policy by the entire UW system. ... Harder, who has four children, earned both a B.A. and B.S. from La Crosse State College and her M.A. from Bowling Green State University.
