Welfare's end by Gwendolyn Mink( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With her analysis of the thirty-year campaign to reform and ultimately to end welfare, Gwendolyn Mink levels a searing indictment of anti-welfare politicians' assault on poor mothers. Mink explores how and why we should cure the unique inequality of poor single mothers by reorienting the emphasis of welfare policy away from regulating mothers to rewarding the work they do. Showing how welfare reform harms women, Mink invites the design of policies to promote gender justice

Hostile environment : the political betrayal of sexually harassed women by Gwendolyn Mink( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Correcting many common misapprehension, Mink explains sexual harassment as a legal concept and charts its judicial and legislative history. She shows the many important contributions feminists have made to the development of sexual harassment law. She also, however, develops a stringent critique of feminist responses to the president's lies in the Jones case."
The wages of motherhood : inequality in the welfare state, 1917-1942 by Gwendolyn Mink( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entering the vigorous debate about the nature of the American welfare state, The Wages of Motherhood illuminates ways in which a "maternalist" social policy emerged from the crucible of gender and racial politics between the world wars. Gwendolyn Mink here examines the cultural dynamics of maternalist social policy, which have often been overlooked by institutional and class analyses of the welfare state. Mink maintains that the movement for welfare provisions, while resulting in important gains, reinforced existing patterns of gender and racial inequality. She explores how Anglo American women reformers, as they gained increasing political recognition, promoted an ideology of domesticity that became the core of maternalist social policy. Focusing on reformers such as Jane Addams, Grace Abbott, Katherine Lenroot, and Frances Perkins, Mink shows how they helped shape a social policy premised on moral character and cultural conformity rather than universal entitlement

Venus and Mars( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are men and women really that different? Society tends to emphasize differences more than similarities. This often leads to competition, and in some cases, inequality. Gender issues and stratification, the gender divide in the workplace, the impact of Title Seven, and the women's movement are explored in this lesson. As illustrated in the example of a female football team, it can take a lot of determination to defy the agents of socialization and overcome gender basis."

Feminisms, family and the state in transition. from welfare to wedlock : should social policy promote mariage and fatherhood?( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gwendolyn Mink discusses the issue of freedom at the heart of current legislative efforts to promote marriage among poor, unmarried mothers or those who are seen as being at risk of becoming poor, unmarried mothers. Recognizing unmarried motherhood as a possible outcome of marital and reproductive freedom, she argues that neither punitive measures nor coercion will cure the inequality that creates poverty; pretending otherwise will only exacerbate the race and class antagonisms that exist among women in the U.S
