9780070204232: Rights and Wrongs: Women's Struggle for Legal Equality (Women's Lives/Women's Work)

   This valuable guide to women and the law offers a concise view of U.S. law as it has affected women's constitutional rights, their position in marriage, their oppurtunities in employment, and their control over their bodies. This new edition outlines advances and setbacks in the legal status of women with discussion of current events and issues including the failure of passage of the ERA and its subsequent reintroduction into Congress, the alarming rise in reported incidents of sexual harrasment and domestic violence, court decisions in cases of sex-based discrimination and affirmative action, increases awareness of the growing number of female poor, and the new concept of equal pay for work of comparable worth.
