Sara Evans has hair that every American knows, and a voice that, if there's justice, will soon be known to every American who enjoys country music. For her Orange County debut Tuesday at the Crazy Horse Steak House in Santa Ana, this newcomer sported a formidable brunet helmet that spelled "Lewinsky" with a twang. Evans' broad, round face and big, toothy smile added to the effect.

*** Sara Evans, "No Place That Far," RCA. The Missouri farm girl's second album ranges impressively enough from gospel bluegrass to chiming, Byrds-inflected country rock to make some predictable material worth overlooking. Five tunes she co-wrote--among the album's strongest--demonstrate her songwriting skills. She's also a strong singer in the Patty Loveless mold, but with more expressiveness.

Considering that the women's movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s was arguably the largest social movement in U.S. history, it is astounding how little has been written about it. Libraries have shelves of books and dozens of documentary videos about the civil rights movement; only a handful of scholars have studied second-wave feminism, as the movement is called by historians. (The first wave extended from the 1840s to 1920.

June 11, 1989 | Susan Levine, Levine is the author of "Labor's True Woman: Carpet Weavers, Industrialization, and Labor Reform in the Gilded Age" (Temple University Press) and is currently a Rockefeller Humanist-in-Residence at the Duke-UNC Center for Research on Women.
As I sat down to review Sara Evans' new history of women in America, "Born for Liberty," a recent television docudrama came to mind. The story of Jessica McClure, the little girl who fell into an abandoned well in her aunt's back yard, at first glance seems far removed from a scholarly text, albeit highly readable and engaging, written by one of the important pioneers in the field of women's history. Yet, the film's theme, the spirit of voluntarism in American history, resonates with Evans' book except for one particular--the conspicuously minor role for women in the televised account of citizen response to crisis.
