In the years before World War I, New York City's Greenwich Village was a place of great artistic and political ferment. Political causes attracted throngs of supporters. Artistic movements filled cafes with boisterous conversation. And for the first time, women began to seize power and play important roles in the political and artistic landscape of the time: Margaret Sanger began her crusade for birth control; Mabel Dodge hosted her salons for the avant garde; Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Workers Movement. The list of women who played integral roles in American life during this time is endless and Sandra Adickes captures them all while evoking the now-lost paradise that New York offered to women at the turn of the century.
