Book published by Chelsea House


The women's rights movement grew out of the women's suffrage movement of the mid-1800s and also addressed other women's legal rights issues. The second wave of the movement, which promoted economic, political, and social equality, gained momentum in the 1960s and '70s, when such groups as the National Organization for Women fought for equal pay and laws banning employment discrimination. Clearly written, The Women's Rights Movement is an illuminating introduction to one of the most prominent reform movements of the last 40 years.

Chelsea House titles offer informative, well written introductions to a wide variety of subjects.

REVIEWS:

“This straightforward and easy-to-follow introduction to the Women's Rights movement covers several topics, with a heavy emphasis on efforts to secure women's suffrage in the 1800s and early 1900s. The book also addresses more recent and current initiatives, particularly the effort to pass the much-debated Equal Rights Amendment. Narrator Talmadge Ragan adopts a measured pace, and her clear and varied articulation helps this work achieve its instructive goals. Ragan's pace and tone result in something approaching an introductory lecture to the topic, and her narration enables the listener to develop an informed understanding of the history of women's suffrage and the key players in the movement.”
