Moving the Mountain

Women Working for Social Change
Ellen Cantarow, Susan Gushee O'Malley & Sharon Hartman Strom

Preface by Ellen Cantarow. Introduction by Ellen Cantarow.

Florence Luscomb campaigned for suffrage early in the century and worked for social change. Ella Baker was a civil rights organizer for over fifty years. Jessie Lopez De La Cruz, a lifelong farmworker, was the first woman to organize in the fields for the United Farmworkers. These vivid oral histories of the lives of these three remarkable political activists document a century of social change movements.

"Good background material, rich, and powerful portraits, and . . . interesting reading."

Library Journal

"[An] admirable book, which combines observed profiles with the self-articulated oral histories to give a sense of the melding of public and private lives."
