Balancing act : motherhood, marriage, and employment among American women by Daphne Spain( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balancing Act draws upon multiple census and survey sources to detail the shifting conditions under which women balance their roles as mothers, wives, and breadwinners. The authors show how women have made great strides in education, where female college enrollment now exceeds that of males, and in the workplace, where women now enter a wider variety of occupations and stay on the job longer than previous generations, even after becoming wives and mothers. Despite these gains, however, many American women are struggling to make ends meet. Lower-paying service positions remain predominantly female and, although the salary gap between men and women has shrunk, women are still paid less for similar work. Also, as women continue to establish a greater presence outside the home, many have delayed marriage and motherhood. Marked jumps in divorce and out-of-wedlock childbirth have given rise to increasing numbers of female-headed households. Balancing Act focuses on how American women juggle the simultaneous demands of caregiving and wage earning and compares the patterns of their lives with those of women in other countries. The United States is the only industrialized nation without policies to support working mothers; most telling is the absence of subsidized child-care services. As a consequence, the risk of poverty is the single greatest danger facing American mothers, with African American women the most adversely affected

Constructive feminism : women's spaces and women's rights in the American city by Daphne Spain( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Constructive Feminism, Daphne Spain examines the deliberate and unintended spatial consequences of feminism's second wave, a social movement dedicated to reconfiguring power relations between women and men. Placing the women's movement of the 1970s in the context of other social movements that have changed the use of urban space, Spain argues that reform feminists used the legal system to end the mandatory segregation of women and men in public institutions, while radical activists created small-scale places that gave women the confidence to claim their rights to the public sphere
