Escaping a pampered life of privilege, Claire Reed plunged into the heady activist days of the sixties, first as an anti-nuclear demonstrator and then as a key player on Bella Abzug's political team and in the civil rights movement. An insider's memoir of life on the front lines during one of the most transformative eras for women. 

"Toughing It Out gives us the inside story of an era of change and turmoil. Claire Reed's witty and irascible, bold and surprising activist journey will delight and inspire everyone concerned about peace and freedom, women's liberation and human rights." —Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt
