Product Overview

In the years before World War I, New York City's Greenwich Village was a place of great artistic and political ferment. For the first time, women began to seize power and shape the landscape of the time: Margaret Sanger began her crusade for birth control; Mabel Dodge hosted salons for the avant-garde; Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Workers Movement; Elizabeth Gurley Flynn helped to organize the Workers of the World. Sandra Adickes captures these influential women while evoking the now-lost paradise that New York City offered women at the turn of the century.
