In Feminists and Party Politics, the author examines the effort to bring feminism into the formal political arena through established political parties in Canada and the United States.

Two major sets of questions lie at the heart of this book. First, how have movement organizations approached partisan and electoral politics? To what extent have they tried to change parties? Second, how have parties themselves responded to the mobiliation of feminism? Young's suggestive research -- based on numerous interviews and archival and documentary material -- makes a significant contribution to the study of gender politics.
