Controversy and coalition : the new feminist movement by Myra Marx Ferree( Book )

36 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this extensively revised and expanded edition of their highly-praised 1985 volume, Myra Marx Ferree and Beth B. Hess trace three decades of struggle and change wrought by the New Feminist Movement. Contemporary feminism has indelibly and irrevocably transformed American culture, institutional structures and practices, and the consciousness of individual women and men. Whether or not openly acknowledged, a majority of American women support the goals of this most broad-based and far-reaching social movement. The authors trace the rise of contemporary feminism, noting its ties to the earlier suffrage movement, its grounding in historical changes since the 1920s, and the particular conditions of its emergence in the 1960s. Ferree and Hess describe the diversity of its multiple constituencies and ideological positions, tracing numerous areas of conflict as well as consolidation, as both the movement and its external environment change over the decades. Internal dissension and encounters with a powerful backlash movement have shaped the new feminism in directions only dimly envisaged in the 1960s, yet of profound significance for the future. In the light of these developments, each chapter has been reconceptualized and rewritten, and two new ones added to cover the period from 1982 to the present. The volume closes with an assessment of the achievements of the New Feminist Movement, its strengths and failures, and the potential for further changes in the new millennium. Complementing the book's eight chapters are photographs and tables, as well as a selected bibliography and a new feature - a chronology of major events in the history of American feminism over the past three decades. This new and expanded edition of Controversy and Coalition should enjoy wide appeal among students in the fields of gender studies, social movements, sociology, and political science

Revisioning gender( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive handbook attempts to summarize the state of gender studies not only by examining the crucial research of the past decade, but by encouraging thinking about how the questions central to studying gender have themselves changed. Building on the work started by the contributors to this volume's predecessor (Analyzing Gender, Sage 1987), editors Myra Marx Ferree, Judith Lorber, and Beth B. Hess reflect on the advances of gender scholarship during the past decade with its emphasis on all levels of social structure from the most macro to the most individual. Revisioning Gender is a step toward constructing a new analytical approach for the social sciences, one that calls into question disciplinary boundaries and the specific agendas entailed therein

Despite the pervasive changes that have taken place in women's lives in the past twenty-five years--increased participation in the labor force, the attainment of higher levels of education, and higher salaries--comparable changes in the division of family labor and in the roles of men have lagged considerably. In this timely book, the editors and other experts in feminism and family studies examine the effects of two decades of influence by the women's movement on sex roles and child rearing. While applauding some positive changes, the contributors point to powerful forces of resistance to equ
