Women's Rights in the United States [4 volumes] Summary

Women's Rights in the United States [4 volumes]: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Issues, Events, and People by Tiffany K. Wayne, PhD

A comprehensive encyclopedia tracing the history of the women's rights movement in the United States from the American Revolution to the present day.

Few realize that the origin of the discussion on women's rights emerged out of the anti-slavery movement of the 19th century, and that suffragists were active in the peace and labor movements long after the right to vote was granted. Thus began the confluence of activism in our country, where the rights of women both followed-and led-the social and political discourse in America. Through 4 volumes and more than 800 entries, editor Tiffany K. Wayne, with advising editor Lois Banner, examine the issues, people, and events of women's activism, from the early period of American history to the present time. This comprehensive reference not only traces the historical evolution of the movement, but also covers current issues affecting women, such as reproductive freedom, political participation, pay equity, violence against women, and gay civil rights.


  • Offers informed, critical insights and perspectives from editor Tiffany K. Wayne; advising editor Lois Banner, noted author, professor, historian, and feminist; and expert contributors
  • Comprises more than 800 entries in four volumes on the people, organizations, events, legislation, and primary documents impacting gender relations in the United States
  • Supplies valuable content for librarians' events and programming for Women's History Month each March
  • Provides listings of U.S. court cases regarding women's rights chronologically organized by major time periods
  • Aligns with high school and college curricula in offering the experiences of American women
  • Includes coverage of current and ongoing issues related to women's civil and political equality in the 21st century
