dc.description.abstract This is an exploratory study of the lives of six women, graduates of Bryn Mawr College, who defined themselves as feminist in the late sixties and early seventies. Because of the exploratory nature of the work the focus has shifted substantially since its inception. Hence an overview of the study's organization is helpful. Since part of the purpose of this study is an exploration of nontraditional methodology, one component of the study traces the changes in the project. Thus Chapter One provides the original conception of the study. It contains an introduction to the initial purpose; an appropriate literature review; and expected methods. Chapter Two details how the study was actually carried out. It contains a description of the actual methods and a reflection on the dilemmas of methodology given the process of the study; a description and analysis of the individual women's lives; a general analysis of themes across the women's lives; and a re-examination of the literature review. The Epilogue concludes by reflecting on the study and its affects on the researcher.
