Beyond separate spheres : intellectual roots of modern feminism by Rosalind Rosenberg( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation "This lucid study moves changing ideas about sex roles from the margins to the center of intellectual history. With superb insight and erudition Rosenberg discerns the connections between social science and feminism which replaced the ideal of 'true womanhood' with 'the new woman' at the turn of the 20th century. Besides brilliantly illuminating the personalities and ideas which led from one intellectual era to another, the book contributes groundbreaking research to the question of feminism's fate in the 1920s."--Nancy F. Cott "Weaving anecdote and analysis, Rosenberg shows how the women's experiences in academic and institutional settings influenced the direction and content of their theoretical work."-Kathryn Kish Sklar, The Wilson Quarterly
Divided lives : American women in the twentieth century by Rosalind Rosenberg( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of American women have changed dramatically in the nine decades since the turn of the century. Women have made extraordinary strides in winning personal autonomy, sexual freedom, economic independence, and legal rights. They won the right to vote, the legal right to equal pay for equal work, and the right to control their reproductive lives. Nonetheless, the vast majority of women still assume the domestic burdens that leave men free to play their traditional role outside the home; paradoxically, the bedrock of liberal individualism that has made women's great gains possible clashes with the powerful tradition of gender inequality. Moreover, it has impeded the growth of social services--health care, maternal aid, and child care--that could further promote equality for women. Equality in practice remains elusive. Rosalind Rosenberg writes a lively history. She includes vignettes of many of the great leaders who during a turbulent century-long struggle have achieved so much for their sex: reformers Jane Addams and Frances Peck; labor leaders Elizabeth Gurley Flynn and Ruth Young; birth-control advocates Emma Goldman and Margaret Sanger; civil-rights leaders Ida Wells-Barnett and Pauli Murray; feminists Alice Paul and Betty Friedan; and many lesser-known women. Enjoyable, colorful, informed, Ms. Rosenberg's book maintains a clear focus as it deals with the leaders, the goals (some contradictory), and triumphs (and occasional setbacks) of the women's movement in the twentieth century
Changing the subject : how the women of Columbia shaped the way we think about sex and politics by Rosalind Rosenberg( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This remarkable story begins in the years following the Civil War, when reformers - emboldened by the egalitarian rhetoric of the post-Civil War era - pressed New York City's oldest institution of higher learning to admit women in the 1870s. Their effort failed, but within twenty years Barnard College was founded, creating a refuge for women scholars at Columbia, as well as an academic beachhead "from which women would make incursions into the larger university." By 1950, Columbia was granting more advanced degrees to women and hiring more female faculty than any other university in the country." "In Changing the Subject, Rosalind Rosenberg shows how this century-long struggle transcended its local origins and contributed to the rise of modern feminism, furthered the cause of political reform, and enlivened the intellectual life of America's most cosmopolitan city."--Jacket
Jane Crow : the life of Pauli Murray by Rosalind Rosenberg( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout her prodigious life, activist and lawyer Pauli Murray systematically fought against all arbitrary distinctions in society, channeling her outrage at the discrimination she faced to make America a more democratic country. In this definitive biography, Rosalind Rosenberg offers a poignant portrait of a figure who played pivotal roles in both the modern civil rights and women's movements. A mixed-race orphan, Murray grew up in segregated North Carolina before escaping to New York, where she attended Hunter College and became a labor activist in the 1930s. When she applied to graduate school at the University of North Carolina, where her white great-great-grandfather had been a trustee, she was rejected because of her race. She went on to graduate first in her class at Howard Law School, only to be rejected for graduate study again at Harvard University this time on account of her sex. Undaunted, Murray forged a singular career in the law. In the 1950s, her legal scholarship helped Thurgood Marshall challenge segregation head-on in the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case. When appointed by Eleanor Roosevelt to the President's Commission on the Status of Women in 1962, she advanced the idea of Jane Crow, arguing that the same reasons used to condemn race discrimination could be used to battle gender discrimination. In 1965, she became the first African American to earn a JSD from Yale Law School and the following year persuaded Betty Friedan to found an NAACP for women, which became NOW. In the early 1970s, Murray provided Ruth Bader Ginsburg with the argument Ginsburg used to persuade the Supreme Court that the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution protects not only blacks but also women - and potentially other minority groups - from discrimination. By that time, Murray was a tenured history professor at Brandeis, a position she left to become the first black woman ordained a priest by the Episcopal Church in 1976. Murray accomplished all this while struggling with issues of identity. She believed from childhood she was male and tried unsuccessfully to persuade doctors to give her testosterone. While she would today be identified as transgender, during her lifetime no social movement existed to support this identity. She ultimately used her private feelings of being "in-between" to publicly contend that identities are not fixed, an idea that has powered campaigns for equal rights in the United States for the past half-century."--
