Abstract:

A handbook for anyone involved in, or contemplating, feminist activism. Relates the author's experiences as a grassroots organizer embracing creative new forms of activism. Aimed at everyone from students to professionals, stay-at-home moms to artists, Grassroots answers the perennial question: What can I do? Based on the authors' own experiences, and the stories of activists as well as everyday people, Grassroots encourages people to move beyond the "generic three" (check writing, calling congresspeople, and volunteering) and make a difference with clear guidelines and models for activism. The authors draw heavily on individual stories as examples, inspiring readers to recognize the tools right in front of them--be it the office copier or the family living room--in order to make change.--From publisher description.
