It relates how she delivered her first speech on the top of the police car that had been dispatched to Sproul Plaza to take Jack Weinberg to jail. This was the beginning of what was to become the Free Speech Movement. It explains how she learned about women's history, gendered oppression, and sexual abuse from joining the FSM in 1964.
