Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 2001 text, McGlen (Niagara U.) suggests that the woman's movement has entered a new phase characterized by both "feminist malaise" and expanded support networks. After a historical overview of the movement in the US, contributors discuss ongoing struggles and mobilization goals. New features include thematic boxes on leadership profiles, women and politics, survey data on issues, and additional coverage of such topics as women in the military. Cartoons reinforce points.

Synopsis:

Updated in a new 5th edition, Women, Politics, and American Society combines historical and topical approaches with a focus on political rights, education and employment, and familial and reproductive rights. This text motivates readers to pursue subjects of particular interest in greater detail and encourages students to become active participants in the political process.

Synopsis:

A must-read for anyone wishing to understand the history and present-day political reality of women in the United States, this fascinating book explores three basic themes: political rights and realities, employment and educational rights and realities, and familial and reproductive rights and realities. Women, Politics, and American Society first traces the efforts of women to achieve rights in those areas and then tries to answer the question of why women still fall short of full equality.
