I thought the long list of caucuses formed by women in the early 70s on page 212 was fascinating, both because of their quantity and specificity (though Women’s Caucus of the American Association for the Advancement of Science really needs an anagram… WCotAAftAoS?) and also because their formation strikes me as a move to fight against the existing¬†power structures by creating new ones, as if to say, “okay, if you won’t let us into¬†your clubs, we’ll make our own!”
