This examines the emergence of feminist movements from the Civil Rights/Black Liberation movement, the Chicano movement, and the white left in the 1960s and 1970s. The author argues that the 'second wave' was comprised of feminisms: organizationally distinct movements that influenced each other in complex ways. The making of second wave feminisms resulted from decisions that feminists made about their political choices given constraints that affected their activism. These constraints were placed on them by structural inequalities that militated against unity among feminists from different racial/ethnic communities; by loyalties that feminists, particularly feminists of color, felt to other members of their movement communities; and by the necessity of making political decisions within a competitive and complex extra-institutional oppositional milieu.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a major contribution to the study of second-wave feminism in the United States ... the rhetorical and stylistic clarity of the writing ... provides a very useful and stimulating insight into how to reconcile the structural strain which prevails in American social movement theory ...'. Cercles
"Her capacity to problematize widely accepted approaches to the study of the second wave enables us to see that field anew." Tim Hodgdon, Duke University, H-Net
"Roth has written an impressive book that makes a strong contribution to the growing literature on U.S. feminism." -Lisa Sun-Hee Park, UC San Diego
"In Separate Roads to Feminism: Black, Chicana, and White Feminist Movements in American's Second Wave, Benita Roth performs the important task of rereading second-wave feminism from an intersectional (race-class-gender) perspective... I highly recommend Separate Roads to Feminism." -Patricia Richards, University of Georgia
