No Permanent Wavesboldly enters the ongoing debates over the utility of the wave” metaphor for capturing the complex history of women’s rights by offering fresh perspectives on the diverse movements that comprise U.S. feminism, past and present. Seventeen essays—both original and reprinted—address continuities, conflicts, and transformations among women’s movements in the United States from the early nineteenth century through today. A respected group of contributors from diverse generations and backgrounds argue for new chronologies, more inclusive conceptualizations of feminist agendas and participants, and fuller engagements with contestations around particular issues and practices. Race, class, and sexuality are explored within histories of women’s rights and feminism as well as the cultural and intellectual currents and social and political priorities that marked movements for women’s advancement and liberation. These essays question whether the concept of waves surging and receding can fully capture the complexities of U.S. feminisms and suggest models for reimagining these histories from radio waves to hip-hop.
