9780155961968: Banner Women in Modern America 2e

As a primary text for courses covering the history of women in the United States, the second half of the U.S. survey, twentieth-century U.S. history, or as a supplement to a variety of sociology and political science courses, Professor Banner's book provides both pictorial and textual documentation of women's roles in the United States from 1890 to the present. Banner delineates three goals in her approach: to explore the reasons why feminism rose and fell and rose again, to examine the history of various groups of women, and to focus on the continuing struggle women face in claiming their rights. Features: * Examines how various groups of women - ethnic, economic, and geographic - responded to historical pressures and opportunities. * Analyzes the historical effect of the dichotomized image associated with women - the good wife, mother and homemaker versus the evil temptress. * Traces the history of feminism as advocacy of women's rights and examines its changing definitions throughout history. * Outlines historical discrimination against women, from employment and education to law and freedom of choice.
