While most people say they believe in equal rights, the word feminism makes people uncomfortable. Explore the history of United States feminism through pioneers such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, and Gloria Steinem. Meet modern leaders such as Rebecca Walker and Julie Zeilinger, who are striving to empower women at work, in government, and at home. Learn from interviews with movement leaders, scholars, pop stars, and average women, what it means to be a feminist -- or to reject it altogether.
