Women on the Hill: A History of Women in Congressby Jill S. Pollack
The historic struggle of women to find equal representation in national politics continues today. This book comes at a crucial time in the history of women in politics. After the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote in national elections, after the infamous Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, and after the historic elections of women to prominent positions in 1992, women continue to face discrimination, skeptics, and under-representation in Congress. Author Jill S. Pollack presents biographies of a number of congresswomen, a thorough and readable background on how Congress works, and a comprehensive listing of all women who have ever served in Congress.
