Women and Power in American History provides a coherent group of readings related to the unifying theme of power in women's lives over time. A greater understanding of how power inequalities are organized along gender lines can help us work toward a more egalitarian and just society. Because the work of the women's movement is far from complete, the need for a fuller historical understanding of how women's lives have changed over time remains great. This anthology brings together carefully selected, cutting-edge readings in U.S. Women's History--organized around issues related to gender and power in American society. The twenty-seven individual essays provide students with unifying themes that promote their understanding of women's history and changing gender relations. Both co-authors are highly visible in the field of women's history.
