World War II was a key moment for all women as they stepped into opportunities vacated by men and welcomed younger women into public life. This chapter focuses on how women, especially southern women, came of age in World War II. It attempts to draw a map of how Anne Scott and Pauli Murray found each other—a map that has to include an intergenerational model of feminist activism, a more prominent place for southern women in second-wave feminism, a fuller cost accounting of the Cold War, and a prehistory of the “like race” analogies that influenced feminist strategy in the 1960s.

Keywords:   black southern women, civil rights, women’s rights, human rights, feminist activism, feminism
