Synopses & Reviews
Since the publication of its first edition in 1990, Unequal Sisters has been considered one of the most influential and groundbreaking works in the field of women's studies. Bringing together a broad, multicultural view, it presents the best scholarship available on the issues of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and class in its attempt to provide a more accurate and more inclusive history of women in the United States.
Now, featuring more than twenty new essays and works by a number of exciting young scholars, this third edition maintains the essential themes and strong emphasis on women of color of earlier editions, but will incorporate many new developments in women's history: emerging views on American women in global perspective, considerations of masculinity, explorations of women of privilege, and increased emphasis on lesbians and Jewish women. Addressing questions regarding the rise of multiculturalism its impact on women's history, political changes, and the hope for a more equitable future-Unequal Sisters continues to dominate the field of women's studies as an unequaled source of brilliant writing, groundbreaking scholarship, and timely commentary on what it means to be a woman in the United States today.
