Some observers have argued that the women's movement has declined in recent years to the point that it is dead or at best irrelevant in a "postfeminist" age. In fact, there has been a remarkable continuity in movement activity, even in a locale characterized by high population turnover and a lack of stable movement organizations. Based on a case study of feminist activity in Bloomington, Indiana, this paper shows how the women's movement has survived in such a setting through institutionalization, the creation of a movement culture and discourse, and issue-driven collective action.
