The Masses was the most dynamic and influential left-wing magazine of the early twentieth century, a touchstone for understanding radical thought and social movements in the United States during that era. As a magazine that supported feminist issues, it played a crucial role in shaping public discourse about women's concerns. In this major revisionist work, Margaret C. Jones calls for reexamination of the relevance of Masses feminism to that of the present.
"This book reclaims an important aspect of the history of feminism in America because it shows how women who were active in a variety of causes kept sight of those issues that affected the majority of women. Students of women's literature, class-conscious feminism, and radical journalism in pre-WWI America will find this book and its scholarly apparatus extremely useful." ― Choice
