Summary
"Women in American Politics: History and Milestones is a unique and comprehensive new reference detailing the milestones and trends in women's political participation in the United States. This two-volume work provides much needed perspective and background on the events and situations that have surrounded women's political activities. Women in American Politics offers insightful analysis on women's political achievements in the United States, including the campaign to secure nation-wide suffrage; pioneer women state officeholders; women first elected to U.S. Congress, governorships, mayoralties, and other offices; and women first appointed as Cabinet officials, judges, and ambassadors. It also includes profiles of the women who have run for president and vice president, and interest groups and political actions committees. Women in American Politics is organized in a framework both logical and useful to readers and researchers. The reference offers students, scholars, teachers, and other professionals a guide to understanding the complex struggle in women's progress toward achieving political parity with men in the United States."--Publisher's website
