The Epilogue offers reflections on Breckinridge’s philosophy of “passionate patience” and the lasting legacy of her lifelong dedication to social justice activism. It also notes parallels between the issues that concerned her--including racial equality, immigrant rights, birth control, and health care--and those that engage activists today, suggesting the continuing importance of women’s activism in modern America.
