"Whatever became of the youth of the '60s, the turbulent era of sex, drugs and rock & roll? [This] collection of intimate stories by women from the first generation ever to have access to The Pill, offers a unique perspective on the decade before Roe v. Wade, when free love wasn't always free. As the women's movement spread, these women faced a future of extraordinary possibilities - possibilities seen by today's youth as commonplace. These writers' stories are universal - they fell in love, most married, some divorced. Others divulge, for the first time, details kept hidden nearly five decades. Each recognized early the irresistible urge to defy tradition. They no longer felt obligated to follow in the footsteps of their mothers. Indeed, they no longer felt obligated to be mothers ... you'll discover how everyday women, childfree by choice or circumstance, created an array of fascinating, fulfilling lives"--Publisher's description.

If you grew up in the 60's, this is your book. Touching, confessional, truthful about the days of sex, drugs, rock and roll. Elizabeth Gilbert of EAT PRAY LOVE wrote the forward. She says there are women cut out to be mothers, those who should be aunties, and those that should not get 10 ft of a child. Would be good Women's Studies Book.
