Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 926–927. Reviews the book, A Group Called Women: Sisterhood and Symbolism in the Feminist Movement by Joan Cassell (see record 1979-05758-000). The first section of this book concentrates on the process of becoming a feminist, recounts the development of one particular consciousness-raising group and describes the changes in behavior as well as thinking that occur in women who have undergone this process. The second section of the book, which deals primarily with the structure and dynamics of movement groups as an expression of feminist ideals in symbolic form, provides less of an overview for the neophyte and more of an analytic and critical examination of the functioning of the movement.
