9780809097845: Divided Lives: American Women in the Twentieth Century (American Century Series)

Winner of the 1983 Fredrick Jackson Turner Award from the Organization of American Historians.

American women have made great strides in the last century to win personal autonomy, sexual freedom, economic independence, and legal rights. Yet the vast majority of them still assume the domestic burdens that leave men free to play their traditional public roles. Examining women's lives in the larger context of U.S. social and political history, Rosenburg shows how American traditions of federalism, racial and ethnic diversity, geographic mobility, and relative abundance have both aided and hindered women's strides toward equality.This lively and informed analysis of the leaders, goals, and setbacks of the women's stride towards equality. This informed analysis of the leaders, goals, and setbacks of the women's movement is a landmark study.

Product Description:

Early histories of women's lives tended to represent women as victims of discrimination and faulty socialization. In the 1970s the predominate emphasis was on the sameness of men and women. The 1980s brought an awareness of difference, not only of men from women, but among women of class, race, religion and sexuality. This book argues that none of these approaches alone can explain the history of American women.

About the Author:

Rosalind Rosenberg is a professor of history at Barnard College and the author of Beyond Separate Spheres: Intellectual Roots of Modern Feminism and Changing the Subject: How the Women of Columbia Shaped the Way We Think About Sex and Politics.
