Description: Women in the United States once had few options: they were considered the property of their husbands, they could not vote, nd they could not enter most professions. Today, women's lives are far different than they were one hundred or even fifty years ago. Prepared by the Women's Research and Education Institute, this seventh volume of the acclaimed biannual series documenting the social, economic, and political status of American women looks back at the progress -- and setbacks -- of women during the past century, as well as looking ahead to he challenges of the future.

Former Secretary of Commerce Juanita Kreps and her daughter Sarah Kreps open the book with personal perspectives on growing up female in America. Sarah Evans provides history of the women's movement, including the gradual entry of women into the labor force, the rise of feminism, the influence of the civil rights movement, and the fight for equal opportunity in the workplace. Shorter essays include Vicki Crawford and Margarita Benitez discussing the experiences of African American and Hispanic women, and Sonia Jarvis examining the major judicial and legislative decisions that have shaped women's rights. As always, WREI concludes with a comprehensive statistical portrait of American women today.
