A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Drawing on original research, Kristin A. Goss charts the scope and trajectory of American women s policy agendas and collective engagement in public policy-making from the 19th-century suffrage movement through the present day. She examines how women s civic place has changed over time, how the range of issue agendas has shifted significantly and substantively, how public policy has driven change, and why all of these things matter for women and American democracy. As measured by women s groups appearances before the U.S. Congress, Goss finds that women s collective political engagement grew from 1920 to 1960 when conventional accounts claim it declined---and declined in later decades when it might have been expected to grow. She suggests that enhanced political inclusion does not necessarily lead to greater political participation and that rights movements do not necessarily constitute the best way to understand the political participation of marginalized groups. She asks what women have gained---and lost---through expanded incorporation and considers whether single-sex advocacy organizations continue to matter. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780472118519

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Drawing on original research, Kristin A. Goss examines how women's civic place has changed over the span of more than 120 years, how public policy has driven these changes, and why these changes matter for women and American democracy. Suffrage, which granted women the right to vote and invited their democratic participation, provided a dual platform for the expansion of women's policy agendas. As measured by women's groups' appearances before the U.S. Congress, women's collective political engagement continued to grow between 1920 and 1960--when many conventional accounts claim it declined--and declined after 1980, when it might have been expected to grow. This waxing and waning was accompanied by major shifts in issue agendas, from broad public interests to narrow feminist interests.Goss suggests that ascriptive differences are not necessarily barriers to disadvantaged groups' capacity to be heard; that enhanced political inclusion does not necessarily lead to greater collective engagement; and that rights movements do not necessarily constitute the best way to understand the political participation of marginalized groups. She asks what women have gained -- and perhaps lost -- through expanded incorporation as well as whether single-sex organizations continue to matter in 21st-century America.
