Gender, Family and Social Movements

Gender, Family and Social Movements

July 1997 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Ideal as a basic text in undergraduate gender or social movements courses, or as a supplement in sociology of family classes. Uses compelling case materials (i.e. the struggle over the ERA, abortion rights, or the fight for gay and lesbian rights) to show how large-scale historical transformations are relevant to pressing social issues. The book also links gender with social movements in a way that shows how events of the 19th century are relevant to understanding the struggles for change today.

"I am very enthusiastic about this book, not only from the standpoint of my own course needs, but as someone interested in the significance of social movements for gender change."
