Kathie Sarachild, Jenny Brown and Amy Coenen have collaborated across the feminist and Redstockings generations.

Sarachild is one of the 1960's Redstockings veteran organizers and theoreticians. Brown and Coenen began their association with Redstockings in the late 1980's and early 1990's as young college activists in Gainesville Women's Liberation and the National Organization for Women. Gainesville Women's Liberation, founded in 1968 and the first Southern women's liberation group of the 1960's, also collaborated closely with the New York-based Redstockings during those rebirth years, a collaboration which continues today. All were editors of the Redstockings organizing packet Women's Liberation & National Health Care: Confronting the Myth of America.

As co-chair of the local Labor Party, she helped lead a successful campaign in the 2000 elections in Alachua County, Florida that garnered 65 % of the vote for a referendum backing universal health insurance. She has been a paid staffer for both Gainesville Women's Liberation and Redstockings and is a co-editor of The Gainesville Iguana, an alternative newspaper.

Kathie Sarachild is the founder of the Redstockings "Archives for Action" project. She was an editor and contributor to the 1975 Redstockings book Feminist Revolution, republished by Random House in an abridged edition in 1978. In the late 1960's, she coined the slogan "Sisterhood Is Powerful" and was a major architect of the program for consciousness-raising groups that did so much to spread the movement during its rebirth years.
