"This marvelous anthology shows the vital role outrider women played in changing our world--often overlooked, they were the heart of the '60s revolution."
--Brenda Knight, author of Women of the Beat Generation

"Times They Were A-Changing is the book long missing from the packed second-wave feminism shelf. Finally, the women you never heard from are speaking in their own powerful voices about how each pushed America toward greater equality and justice. If you are a woman over a certain age, you will find yourself in this book's stories. If you are a woman of any other age, you will find your own story informed and enriched by these beautifully written, honest, and evocative essays."
--Gloria Feldt, Cofounder and President of Take the Lead, former President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
