Fifty young women describe how their mother's feminism has shaped their own values, choices, and goals, and discuss their views on sexuality and feminity, work, private and public images and roles.
Rose Glickman received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois in 1958. In the same year she got a Master of Arts from McGill University. In 1967 Rose obtained a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Chicago.
Historian Rose Glickman has long been interested in women’s lives. In 1984 she published a study of Russian women in the workplace, Russian Factory Women: Workplace and Society, 1880-1914, the first study of its kind. Nearly a decade later she collected interviews with feminists’ children in Daughters of Feminists: Young Women with Feminist Mothers Talk about Their Lives, which won the American Book Award.
In Russian Factory Women, Glickman detailed the working conditions of female Russian factory workers prior to World War I. Wage inequality, unsafe working conditions, and sexual abuse were among the problems these workers encountered and were reflected in the provincial council reports that Glickman researched to write her study. Though women took part in workers’ strikes after 1905, they were reluctant to join labor unions, and the unions, made up largely of men, did not welcome them either.
For Daughters of Feminists, Glickman interviewed fifty young women ranging in age from eighteen to thirty- five years whose mothers identified themselves as feminists. These women hailed from New York City, western New York State, Chicago, and the San Francisco Bay area, and included women of various socioeconomic levels (middle-class, single-parent, and two-parent households), homosexual orientation, and different ethnicities (African America, Asian American, Caucasian, Jewish, Latina).
Glickman’s goal was to determine what, if any, affect the feminist experiences of the mothers had upon the daughters who were being raised in “feminist” households. Glickman discovered that feminist mothers can help their daughters develop personal belief systems and self-confidence, but these daughters will still face discrimination based on gender. Glickman noted that some of the now-adult daughters are involved in the same causes as their mothers, while others have chosen different levels of involvement in feminist causes. For its subject matter and accessibility to the general reader, the work caught the attention of reviewers.
During her career Rose Glickman worked as a Russian instructor and professor of history at Mills College, acting as an assistant professor, and professor of history at the University of California.
