Everywhere and Nowhere: Contemporary Feminism in the United States

Acknowledgments

ONE OF THE nice things about finishing a book is having a moment to reflect upon the incredible journey of researching, thinking, writing, and revising, revising, revising. I have had the extraordinarily good fortune to be surrounded by a community of scholars, friends and family who have supported and encouraged me during this entire decade-long project. Some have been constants in my life and others are newly discovered but each is equally treasured.

I began this project in earnest at Oakland University when my then-chair Professor David Maines got all incoming junior faculty a “start-up” research fund. Dave, in his brilliance, realized that social scientists, like those in other fields, need support and so I began my time at Oakland with money to use for travel, transcribing, conferences and other expenses. Oakland University also granted me two summer fellowships, which allowed me to dedicate my time to focusing on my research and writing. The brilliance of one chair was replaced by another, Professor Jay Meehan. Jay listened to my (almost constant) complaints about finding time to write and research and found travel money to allow me to collaborate with colleagues who helped me think through this project. I thank both of these men.

From the start I drew on the scholarly foundation provided by my graduate school advisor Professor Verta Taylor. Because of Verta, and her work with Leila Rupp, I had a breadth and depth of knowledge that was invaluable in puzzling out the direction of contemporary feminism. I also have depended on (as with all my work) my colleague and friend Nancy Whittier for her wise work and words. In other places, I have called her my touchstone and I again invoke this description—thank you, Nancy.

And then there are the colleagues who read my work and offered insightful comments. Thank you to Rachel Einwohner, Stephanie Gilmore, Laura Landolt and Judy Taylor, who all read some version of the work that appears in this book. My pal and colleague, retired Dean Julie Voelck, read every single word of this
