Welfare state and woman power: essays in state feminism
During the past decade, Scandinavian women have made significant advances in terms of political power and are beginning to make their presence felt in most areas of welfare state policy. The essays in this book analyze some of the factors which have facilitated women's entry into the public sphere, their participation in political movements and corporate politics, and the placement of women's issues onto the political agenda.
