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.

  • A chapter on women's political participation focuses on women as "insiders" and "outsiders," and three separate chapters on policy examine education, economic equality, and fertility and family issues.
  • Encountering the Controversies of Equality boxes use various perspectives to present key issues, cases, and controversies relating to gender equality and offer questions for discussion.
  • The text-specific web site provides Paths to Action, a feature detailing ways in which students can become involved in the pursuit of gender equality.

Review:

The Pursuit of Equality: Women's Enduring Political Challenge is simply the best text I have encountered for use in an undergraduate course on Women and Politics. I cannot wait to introduce this text in my classroom! -- Review
