WOMEN AND POLITICS examines the pursuit of gender equality from two viewpoints: the legal equality doctrine, which emphasizes gender neutrality, and the fairness doctrine, which recognizes differences between men and women. The text's in-depth analysis and clear presentation of theory and history helps students to think critically about gender and about the challenges faced by women today and in the past. Extensive coverage of diversity among women and consistent attention to the intersections of race, class, and gender are integral to the text's two-viewpoints theme.

Review:

"One of the reasons that I chose this book is these themes (...the legal equity doctrine and the fairness doctrine) - helps students realize that there are multiple perspectives that one can take, and that the perspectives provide very different outcomes. I believe that the theme is consistently carried throughout the book and that it raises the level of the book."Ruth Ann Watry, Northern Michigan University

"This theme is what drew me to the book and what I find to be the book's strongest contribution to the study of women in politics." Marit Berntson, Roanoke College
