9780155961968: Women in Modern America: A Brief History

Appropriate as a primary or supplementary text for courses in the History of Women in the U.S., the U.S. History Survey, 20th Century U.S. History, or as a supplement for many courses in sociology and political science. This book provides both pictorial and textual documentation of women's roles in the U.S. from 1890 to present. Banner's goals are to explore the reasons why feminism rose, fell, and then rose again; to examine the history of various groups of women; and to focus on the continuing struggle women face in claiming their rights.
