Description: In Women's Rights in the USA, Fourth Edition, the authors examine the policy debates critical to women in politics. Tracing the development of these debates over time in order to illustrate their historical context, McBride and Parry show how these issues have evolved and how they have led to the policies and laws of today. They also examine the evolving attitudes of the feminists and advocacy groups behind these debates as they grapple with the tensions between the themes of equality and sex difference as they relate to women's rights.The book also looks at women's place in shaping the policies, statutes, and laws'”from "liberal" activists to policy insiders'”and how those roles shape the debates and issues that move forward today. In a broader context, by following these debates as they move through government institutions to become policies and laws, this book shows students the law-making process through issues that directly affect their lives. Of crucial significance is the acknowledgement that these debates do not end when court decisions, policies, and laws are made, but continue on to foster further movements, viewpoints, and political change.This fourth edition features updates on the most vital issues concerning women's rights today: constitutional equality, reproduction, education, family, work, work & family, regulation and intimidation of sexuality, and economic status.
