Leading the Way is a collection of personal essays written by twenty-one young, hopeful American women who describe their work, activism, leadership, and efforts to change the world. It responds to critical portrayals of this generation of "twenty-somethings" as being disengaged and apathetic about politics, social problems, and civic causes.

Bringing together graduates of a women's leadership certificate program at Rutgers University's Institute for Women's Leadership, these essays provide a contrasting picture to assumptions about the current death of feminism, the rise of selfishness and individualism, and the disaffected Millennium Generation. Reflecting on a critical juncture in their livesùthe years during college and the beginning of careers or graduate studiesùthe contributors' voices demonstrate the ways that diverse, young, educated women in the United States are embodying and formulating new models of leadership, at the same time as they are finding their own professional paths, ways of being, and places in the world. They reflect on controversial issues such as gay marriage, gender, racial profiling, war, immigration, poverty, urban education, and health care reform in a post-9/11 era.

Leading the Way introduces readers to young women who are being prepared and empowered to assume leadership roles with men in all public arenas, and to accept equal responsibility for making positive social change in the twenty-first century.

The anthology was intended to disprove another myth: that Millennial women had turned their backs on the feminist project. In the current monograph, Trigg reaches back a full century to chronicle the lives and commitments of an earlier generation of toilers in the feminist field.

1 We believe that ours is a model for an intellectually rigorous program that draws on the rich scholarship in gender studies to re-imagine leadership, to accelerate young women to leadership, and to consider the ways that women’s leadership can contribute to social change.

I absolutely love this book of essays by young women who became involved in various kinds of activism through a women's leadership program at Rutgers University. I currently use this book as a secondary text in my Community Organizing class in an undergraduate social work program. It's not easy to find compelling stories of activists for the current generation, but this book presents fascinating and moving stories of individual journeys to social awareness and involvement. My students are inspired and energized by these essays -- they love the book and I heartily recommend it.
