Using feminism's blueprint as a guide to changing society


"Be the change you want to see in the world" is a great phrase, but it lacks something: how?

How does a person go about changing themselves and the world? There are plenty of examples out there, and some good ones from feminism are collected in a new book, Feminism in Practice: Communication Strategies for Making Change.

The book considers the work of feminists from several ways as a blueprint for strategies for change. Alena Ruggerio from Southern Oregon University is one of the authors, along with Sonja Foss and Karen Foss, both former university professors themselves.

The three authors visit with an outline of their work.
