More Description

Small Town Revolution is a work of creative non-fiction which describes the coming out process of a politically naive air force wife who moved to Vermont with her husband and two daughters in 1974. After exposure to the radical lesbian feminist Burlington Women's Community, there was no going back to the safety of her bucolic, heterosexual lifestyle even though she loved her exceedingly tolerant husband.
This memoir focuses on the author's conscious choice to switch sexual identities. By sharing her story, Crow reminds us that thousands of women made a political, spiritual and psychological decision to slip out from under the thumb of a male-dominated society and join forces with the revolutionary women's movement which reached its pinnacle in the mid-1970's.
The focus of the book is on the exhilarating and wrenching experience of changing cultures. In this book we see the events of that era from the inside - one woman's personal and interpersonal encounter with lesbian feminism. Based on thirty taped interviews of lesbians from the BWC which were collected in the late '90's, Small Town Revolution exposes the passions and foibles of a tightly-knit group of visionary women who supported, nurtured and occasionally turned on each other in their fervent desire to change the world.
Carol "Crow" Cohen is a Jewish lesbian feminist living in Vermont. Born in 1943 in Hartford, Connecticut, she married her high school sweetheart who subsequently became an air force pilot during the Vietnam War. After convincing her husband to leave active service, she and her family moved to northern Vermont in 1974, seeking a peaceful, small-town life just outside Burlington.
