Part One: Barefoot Frontrunners offers the intimate experience of coming through the sexual and social revolution that allowed women to chose how they wanted to live their lives. Up close and personal, our choices and actions growing up didn’t seem to be a consequence of economic, social, and political forces, until we encountered a disruption and the chaos of 1964. Birth control pills and the sexual revolution allowed women to chose for themselves the trajectory of their lives, and exposed women’s capacity for sexual desire. In the chorus of the Anti-war, Civil Rights and Women’s movements, women responded directly or indirectly to the challenge of what it was to be a woman.

This was the day we went to market, my grandmother and I, and the journey began with us going to the bus stop across the street, where there was a stone wall.
I had set out my patent leather shoes with the white socks that let the shoes slip on so easily. My blue coat and hat, usually worn for church or family visits, were also out and ready for the day when I woke up and came into the kitchen. Grampy was sitting in his special chair, laughing as he often did while he told a story.
