Women and Equality Reviews

"Chafe's analysis of changing social patterns is both solid and imaginative in the best sense....His book will certainly increase our understanding of where we are going--and why."--Elizabeth Janeway

"Adopted as required reading--tremendously popular with students--provokes lively debates."--John Rhinehart, Riverside Community College

"A trenchant analysis of the underlying social and economic changes of the past century....Particularly insightful in analyzing the ways in which racial and sexual inequality are both similar and fundamentally different."--Alice S. Rossi, University of Massachusetts

"A fine book...not only presenting the social history of the recent women's movement, but placing it in the context of the dynamics of American society."--Rose Laub Coser, State University of New York, Stony Brook

"An excellent book, please keep it in print!"--Mary R. Sawyer, Iowa State University

"Well written, stimulating, and informed by an analytical perspective."--American Journal of Sociology

"A compelling study of how women--a numerical majority--have functioned as a 'minority.'"--Kirkus Reviews

"This modest and thoughtful little book, so entirely free from polemics, is excellent evidence of what an unprejudiced study of the past can contribute to the solution of contemporary issues."--Willie Lee Rose, The New York Review of Books

"An excellent introduction to the subject, but, equally important, it is a model of scholarship and organizational technique. I assign it for both reasons."--Lynn H. Parsons, State University of New York, Brockport

"[A]ll topics are dealt with objectively and fully. In fact, it is the fullness of this book that is particularly impressive, with reports of individual women's lives throughout the 30 plus years covered here."--School Library Journal
