520    The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is one
       of the nation's oldest and most influential voices for 
       equality in education, the professions, and public life. 
       Tracing the history of the AAUW, Susan Levine provides a 
       new perspective on the meaning of feminism for women in 
       mainstream organizations. In so doing, she explores the 
       problems that women confront and the strategies they have 
       developed to achieve equal rights. By examining the 
       experience of groups like AAUW, Levine suggests that 
       feminism was not so much "reborn" in the 1970s as it was 
       adopted by a rapidly growing constituency of college 
       educated women demanding the realization of their goals
