Charlotte Bunch-Weeks is an American feminist author and organizer in women's rights and human rights movements, and currently serves as the founding director and senior scholar at the Center for Women's Global Leadership at Rutgers University. Shortly after graduating from college, she became a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C., and founded the publications "Women's Liberation" and "Quest: A Feminist Quarterly". She also helped to found The Furies Collective and their newspaper, "The Furies", both aimed at giving a voice to lesbian separatism. The group was short-lived but was later named the first lesbian-related historic landmark in Washington, D.C. and the first lesbian site on the National Register of Historic Places.
Bunch-Weeks has had a decades-long career in activism and the women's movement; this was her first published work. Quite scarce; as of February 2021, OCLC locates two holdings in North American institutions.
