In the 80 years since gaining the right to vote, women have continued to make their political voices heard. This is the first comprehensive work to describe the political struggles and achievements of American women, who were historically underrepresented in a system dominated by men. Containing over 700 entries in an A-to-Z format, this single volume provides balanced coverage of the people, issues, and events that shape any discussion of women in U.S. politics.

Review:

"Very useful to undergraduates and others seeking theoretical background, ready reference information, or further insight into current political issues." - Choice

"[A]n especially useful reference tool . . . offers comprehensive coverage of women's struggle for participation in the American political process. . . . An unexpected but useful element is the description of numerous Supreme Court decisions with implications for women's political and civil rights. . . . [T]here is excellent cross-referencing and a comprehensive index as well. . . . Recommended for libraries supporting women's studies and political science." - Library Journal

"[A] valuable reference work that should be included in academic and medium-to-large-sized public and high school library collections." - ARBA

"Internal cross references, explicit end-of-article see also references, brief article-specific bibliographies, and a deep index come together to give the encyclopedia the same sort of strength women have found by coming together. . . . During the 1970's, a bumper sticker proclaimed that A woman's place is in the House; this encyclopedia's place is in public and academic library reference collections." - Rettig on Reference

"Reference librarians and students will appreciate the convenience of so many resources within one volume. . . . Recommended for all high school, college, and university libraries." - Journal of Government Information

"An excellent index enables the user to find entries easily. . . . [H]aving all the information in one volume makes this source very unique and useful. Highly recommended for academic, public, and high school libraries." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
