Karla Jay’s memoir of an age whose tumultuous social and political movements fundamentally reshaped American culture takes readers from her early days in the 1968 Columbia University student riots to her post-college involvement in New York radical women’s groups and the New York Gay Liberation Front. In Southern California in the early 70s, she continued in the battle for gay civil rights and helped to organize the takeover of “The Ladies’ Home Journal” and “ogle-in” – where women staked out Wall Street and whistled at the men.
