Women and Politics delivers the best and most comprehensive text on women's access to and participation in the political process in the US. It's sweeping in its breadth, covering historical as well as contemporary examples, local school board and city council politics to the Presidency and Supreme Court, and with illustrations of [both] conservative and progressive women. It uses theory to explore contradictions, and anecdotes to make the controversies alive.--Catherine Connolly, University of Wyoming
As a scholar of women and politics, it is refreshing to see such a well-researched, balanced, and comprehensive take on the role women have and will continue to have in the American political system. I highly recommend it for students of women and politics.--Jennie Sweet-Cushman, Chatham University
This is an outstanding text.
