Summary: Newly revised and updated, this volume examines a broad range of policy areas that affect women, including typical issues such as education, employment, and health, as well as important but frequently overlooked areas such as marriage and family law, child care, and economic equity. Retaining the same framework as the first edition, Women and Public Policy, Second Edition, looks at how cultural change has created a need for public policy and how public policy ...show morehas in turn led to cultural change. Chapters have been updated to reflect recent events and changes in relevant policy areas such as welfare reform, adoptions by gay parents, and the Defense of Marriage Act.

Women and Public Policy places each policy issue in a historical context, discusses formation and implementation of current policy, and explores public policy silences. Seven substantive chapters examine the following policy areas: education; health; employment; economic equity; family law; child care; and criminal justice.

Among the topics receiving updated and expanded coverage are reproductive policies and managed care in Chapter 3, and child care in Chapter 6. Extensive citations to World Wide Web sites provide students direct access to good sources of data and assists them in pursuing their own research.

Women and Public Policy is a perfect supplement for introductory public policy courses, or can be assigned for women and politics courses in combination with Women and Political Participation: Cultural Change in the Political Arena (CQ Press, 1997), by the same authors. ...show less
