Grade 9 Up-This collection of 25 short essays addresses the status of women in America, the differing views of the goals of feminism, and how it has affected our society, and includes the debate over whether or not the movement is obsolete. Conservative writers argue that feminists have exaggerated the problems of workplace discrimination and violence against women, and even claim that feminism has hurt women by forcing them out of traditional roles. Feminists argue that their movement is still alive and well, and that women still have not achieved equality. Regardless of one's political persuasion, there is something controversial and thought-provoking here for everyone. Introductions, chapter prefaces, discussion questions, and plentiful statistics supplement the selections, making this book ideal for school assignments. The extensive annotated list of organizations to contact includes Web sites and e-mail addresses.
