Women and Politics: The Pursuit of Equality
The second volume in the "New Directions in Political Behavior" series, "Women and Politics" brings two perspectives on equality for women to the forefront: the legal doctrine, emphasizing gender neutrality; and the fairness doctrine, recognizing the differences between men and women. In-depth analysis combined with a clear presentation of theory and history motivates students to think critically about the challenges faced by women, past and present.
