More women were elected to the California Legislature in November 1998 than ever before. Twenty-five percent of the 40 state senators who began the two-year legislative session on December 7, 1998 were women. In the 80-seat Assembly, the figure also was 25 percent. Historically, the number of women serving in the California Legislature was minuscule. Soon after women achieved the right to vote in California in 1911, the first four women were elected to the Assembly in 1918. This report documents the passage of California women's equality bills since the 1960's in the areas of civil rights, education, and employment. These are the three major areas where the Legislature sought to afford girls and women the same rights and opportunities as boys and men. Since political changes are intertwined with social changes, the chapters on education and employment include current gender-specific data to show the social trends during these ground breaking years. The report also offers ideas for future legislative consideration in education and employment. The chapter titles include: (1) "The Evolution of Civil Rights for Girls and Women in California"; (2) "Education Equity for Girls and Women: Today's Schoolgirls May Cure Tomorrow's Epidemics"; and (3) "Pursuing Fair Treatment in the Workplace: Rosie the Riveter May Move into Management." Appendix a provides a complete list of all the women who have served in the California Legislature. Appendix b contains statewide summaries of students enrolled in selected mathematics and science courses for grades 9-12 in California public schools by ethnic group for 1987-88 and October 1997. Appendix c presents U.S. Department of Education data about degrees earned in traditionally male-dominated fields of study. (Contains 78 footnotes and extensive tables of data.) (Bt)
