Synopsis: Women in the United States, 1830-1945 investigates women's economic, social, political and cultural history, encompassing all ethnic and racial groups and religions. It provides a general introduction to the history of women in industrializing America. Both a history of women and a history of the United States, its chronology is shaped by economic stages and political events. Although there were vast changes in all aspects of women's lives, gender (the social roles imputed to the sexes) continued to define women's (and men's) lives as much in 1945 as it had in 1830.

From the Inside Flap: Throughout American history, women's roles have been a source of controversy. Despite having to struggle to be heard or listened to, women vigorously participated in the political debates and cultural lives of American society. They responded actively to the social problems of their day, joining anti-slavery and temperance groups in the nineteenth century, only to discover that gender hindered their right to speak or act in public. Such limitations led to the women's rights movement and a long struggle for the vote and full citizenship rights.

In this important new history, Jay Kleinberg explores the transformations in women's lives. She sets women's economic, social and political organizations. The overview of women's changing lives ranges widely across racial, ethnic, and class groups to build an inclusive history to women in urban and rural America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Kleinberg shows the continued dominance of socially restrictive interpretations of women's roles despite dramatic transformations in women's relation to the world inside and outside the home.
