Summary

In this companion volume to their Women and Public Policy: A Revolution in Progress, authors Conway, Steuernagel and Ahern explore the many issues that encompass women and political participation in the United States. In many ways, the story of women's political participation is the story of cultural change. Particular attention is given to the effects of cultural change on gender roles and their impact on women's political attitudes and political behavior.
