Women, Families and Communities, Volume 2, Second Edition
Nancy Hewitt and Kirsten Delegard
Employing a case study approach, this women's history reader explores the connections between the private and personal experiences of American women and the political, economic, intellectual, and social factors that helped shape their lives. The second edition of this popular reader has been thoroughly and completely revised to meet the needs of modern classrooms. It may be used as the main text in courses on women’s history, as well as a supplementary text for any U.S. history survey course.
Volume Two covers material from Reconstruction, through the Roaring Twenties and two world wars, up to present day issues and challenges. The book explores the following themes: the conquest of land and peoples and the impact on women and families; the effects of war on the daily lives of women and communities; the dynamic relations between family, labor and the market economy; women’s activism and political change; sexual violence and women’s agency; and the interplay of race, class and gender in the lives of women and their families and communities.
