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.
This intellectual history of New York City focuses on the role of women prior to World War I. Adickes examines the works and days of Margaret Sanger, Dorthy Day, Mabel Dodge, and others, and considers the unique milieu that promoted artistic and political change.
