In the popular imagination, American women during the time between the end of World War II and the 1960s & mdash;the era of the so-called & ldquo;feminine mystique & rdquo; & mdash;were ultraconservative and passive. College Women in the Nuclear Age takes a fresh look at these women, showing them actively searching for their place in the world while engaging with the larger intellectual and political movements of the times. Drawing from the letters and diaries of young women in the Cold War era, Babette Faehmel seeks to restore their unique voices and to chronicle their collective ambitions.
