Revaluing and Recovering Multicultural Progressive Women WritersSept. 25 2008
- Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Batker illuminates the lost importance of multicultural progressive era women writers efforts to contribute to reform in America. She recovers a lost chapter of literary and political reform history. She demonstrates how these reform journalists and activists crossed racial and ethnic lines, empowering their own and each other's lives as they developed their careers and worked for social reforms. She reveals important historical antecedents to today's debates about multiculturalism in America. Reforming fictions provides us with keen insights into the "personal is political" as contemporary women writers attempt to move forward in their careers and their communities.
