Hotbed: Bohemian New York and the Secret Club that Sparked Modern Feminism | Author: Joanna Scutts

New York City, 1912: at a restaurant in downtown Greenwich Village, a group of women gathered, all with a plan to change the world.?This was the first meeting of 'Heterodoxy', a secret social club. Its members were passionate advocates of women's suffrage, labour rights, equal marriage and free love. They were socialites and socialists; reformers and revolutionaries; artists, writers and scientists.

Hotbed is the never-before-told story of the club whose audacious ideas and unruly acts transformed an international feminist agenda into a modern way of life.
