Sixties Folk,
Hi, some of you may remember me, my name is Cara Simpkins, and I
am a freshman at The College of William and Mary. Thank you everyone
that responded to my last question. I have another paper due soon for my
American Studies seminar on the 1960's. We are to write a research paper
on some phenomenon or organization that began in the 1960's that is still
present in the 1990's. We are to examine how and why the organization
began, how it was viewed in the 60's, and how it has influenced the
current organization. I have chosen NOW, The National Organization for
Women. I am unsure as to whether I can find enough information
specifically on NOW, so I may simply have a main topic of feminism in the
1960's and 1990's with a focus on NOW.
I was wondering if anyone had information pertaining to my topic
that would help me. Can anyone point me in the direction of some books,
articles, or videos? Or, if you were, or are personally involved (or
knew someone that was) in NOW in the 60's or 90's, or in the feminist
movement, I would appreciate your help. Thank you in advance for your
Cara L. Simpkins
