The Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues was the most effective bipartisan organization in the US House of Representatives, says Gertzog (emeritus political science, Allegheny College and Columbia and Rutgers U.), until the Republican revolution of 1994 threatened its survival. He analyzes the origin, development, and influence of the Caucus, and explores how women associated with it have cast off their invisible veils and reasserted their roles in the legislative process.
