After decades of segregation, women were at the forefront of the civil rights movement, the largest social upheaval since the end of the Civil War. Alongside men, they were leaders, planners, organizers, and protesters. They moved the needle toward groundbreaking legislation. They fought for women's rights and for justice for all. As the nation slowly moved toward political equality for people of color, these steadfast activists, alone or in groups, formed the backbone of the movement. This book tells their story.
