Special thanks to the Sy Syms Foundation for their support of the Pioneer Histories Project.
The activists of the Second Wave feminist movement literally changed the world. From 1965 – 1982, thousands of women (and men) took actions that made our country more equitable for women. Some of their stories are well known. Many of their stories have never been told. The VFA Pioneer Histories Project is the personal history of the Second Wave women’s movement – one story at a time. Just click on the photo or name of any of the feminists below to read and listen to their stories.
