Abortion Politics in North America.
Abortion Politics in North America cover image By Melissa Haussman.
Boulder, CO: Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2005.
"Despite legal affirmations of women's rights to abortion, actual access to the procedure in North America is increasingly curtailed. Melissa Haussman analyzes this disturbing disparity between official policies and daily realities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Haussman examines the successes of U.S. antichoice groups, groups that have extended their reach to effectively contest the rights of women throughout North America, as well as the efforts of prochoice groups fighting to keep abortion available in Canada and the U.S. and to legalize it in Mexico. Her sobering conclusion is that basic reproductive rights are at risk of becoming meaningful only to the wealthy." - (publisher's description)

Abortion Politics, Women's Movements, and the Democratic State: A Comparative Study of State Feminism cover image Edited by Dorothy McBride Stetson.
Oxford, England; New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2001.
Series: Gender and politics.
"Containing the results of a cross-national research project on abortion politics in eleven democratic states (between the 1960s and 2000), this volume marks major progress in abortion research. It develops a comprehensive research design to examine whether or not women's policy agencies (institutional groups intended to improve the status of women) have functioned as necessary and effective allies of women's movements. It explores their efforts to gain access to power arenas and secure abortion laws that coincide with feminist goals. Indeed, these findings constitute a rigorous application of comparative methodology to assess explanations from social movement and democratic theory pertaining to variations in state feminism and movement success." - (publisher's description)

An Alliance of Women: Immigration and the Politics of Race.
An Alliance of Women: Immigration and the Politics of Race cover image By Heather Merrill.
Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press, 2006.
"In the 1980s, Italy transformed from a country of emigration to one of immigration. Italians are now faced daily with the presence of migrants from all over Africa, parts of South and Central America, the Middle East, Asia, and Eastern Europe. While much attention has been paid to the impact on Italians, few studies have focused on the agency of migrants themselves. In An Alliance of Women, Heather Merrill investigates how migrants and Italians struggle over meanings and negotiate social and cultural identities." - (publisher's description)

Dubious Conceptions: The Politics of Teenage Pregnancy.
Dubious Conceptions: The Politics of Teenage Pregnancy cover imageBy Kristin Luker.
Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1996.
"As her little boy plays at a day care center across the street, Michelle, an unmarried teenager, is in algebra class, hoping to be the first member of her family to graduate from high school. Will motherhood make this young woman poorer? Will it make the United States poorer as a nation? That's what the voices raised against "babies having babies" would have us think, and what many Americans seem inclined to believe. This powerful book takes us behind the stereotypes, the inflamed rhetoric, and the flip media sound bites to show us the complex reality and troubling truths of teenage mothers in America today.
Would it surprise you to learn that Michelle is more likely to be white than African American? That she is most likely eighteen or nineteen--a legal adult? That teenage mothers are no more common today than in 1900? That two-thirds of them have been impregnated by men older than twenty? Kristin Luker, author of the acclaimed Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood, puts to rest once and for all some very popular misconceptions about unwed mothers from colonial times to the present. She traces the way popular attitudes came to demonize young mothers and examines the profound social and economic changes that have influenced debate on the issue, especially since the 1970s. In the early twentieth century, reformers focused people's attention on the social ills that led unmarried teenagers to become pregnant; today, society has come almost full circle, pinning social ills on sexually irresponsible teens.
Dubious Conceptions introduces us to the young women who are the object of so much opprobrium. In these pages we hear teenage mothers from across the country talk about their lives, their trials, and their attempts to find meaning in motherhood. The book also gives a human face to those who criticize them, and shows us why public anger has settled on one of society's most vulnerable groups. Sensitive to the fears and confusion that fuel this anger, and to the troubled future that teenage mothers and their children face, Luker makes very clear what we as a nation risk by not recognizing teenage pregnancy for what it is: a symptom, not a cause, of poverty." - (publisher's description)

Widows and Orphans First: The Family Economy and Social Welfare Policy, 1880-1939.
Widows and Orphans First: The Family Economy and Social Welfare Policy, 1880-1939 cover image By S.J. Kleinberg.
Urbana, IL: University of Illinois Press, ©2006.
Series: Women in American history.
"Widows and Orphans First investigates the importance of local economies and values in the origins of the welfare state through an exploration of widows' lives in three industrial American cities with widely differing economic, ethnic, and racial bases.
In Fall River, Massachusetts, employment was regarded as the solution to widows' poverty, so public charitable expenditure was drastically limited.
In Pittsburgh, where few jobs were available for women or children--and where jobs for men were in "widowmaking" industries such as steel and railroading--the city's charitable establishments were more sympathetic.
In the border city of Baltimore, which had a large African American population and a diverse economy that relied on inexpensive child and female labor, funds for public services were limited, and African Americans tended to establish their own charitable institutions.
In this unique comparative study of widows' welfare and family economy, Jay Kleinberg examines the role of children in society and the development of social welfare policy for widows." - (publisher's description)

Women and Children First: Feminism, Rhetoric, and Public Policy.
Women and Children First: Feminism, Rhetoric, and Public Policy cover image Edited by Sharon M. Meagher and Patrice DiQuinzio.
Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 2005.
Series: SUNY Series in Gender Theory.
"This diverse collection explores the rhetoric of a wide range of public policies that propose "to put women and children first," including homeland security, school violence, gun control, medical intervention of intersex infants, and policies that aim to distinguish "good" from "bad" mothers. Using various feminist philosophical analyses, the contributors uncover a logic of paternalistic treatment of women and children that purports to protect them but almost always also disempowers them and sometimes harms them. This logic is widespread in contemporary popular policy discourse and affects the way that people understand and respond to social and political issues. Contributors rethink basic philosophical assumptions concerning subjectivity, difference, and dualistic logic in order to read the rhetoric of contemporary public policy discourse and develop new ways of talking and acting in the policy domain." - (publisher's description)

Women Police: Gender, Welfare, and Surveillance in the Twentieth Century.
Women Police: Gender, Welfare, and Surveillance in the Twentieth Century cover image By Louise Ainsley Jackson.
Manchester, England; New York, NY: Manchester University Press; New York, NY: Distributed exclusively in the USA by Palgrave, 2006.
Series: Gender in History.
"Women Police examines the professional roles, identities, activities and everyday experiences of women employed within the UK police service since the First World War against a backdrop of social and cultural change. Focusing on the period before women's formal integration with male officers in the 1970s, the book draws on a rich vein of sources including oral history, autobiography and archival collections, as well as the popular press, literature and visual imagery. It is the first in-depth historical study of women's involvement in uniform, plainclothes and undercover policing, and charts the relationship between gender, surveillance and penal-welfare strategies from a grass-roots perspective." "This study will appeal to scholars and students of social and cultural history, criminology, social policy, sociology and women's studies, as well as those with a general interest in police history." - (publisher's description)

Women with Disabilities Aging Well: A Global View.
Women with Disabilities Aging Well: A Global View cover image By Patricia Noonan Walsh and Barbara LeRoy.
Baltimore, MD: Paul H. Brookes Pub., 2004.
"What do women with intellectual disabilities experience as they age - and what can service providers and researchers learn from their stories? These questions are the focus of this book, which weaves informative research with the oral histories of more than 160 women in 18 countries. Emphasizing that disability is not a disease, the authors use their research and the women's diverse personal stories to explore contributing factors to healthy aging. Readers will review statistics and discover how women with disabilities around the world manage the everyday issues they face, including: economic factors such as securing employment, controlling finances, and budgeting for living arrangements; personal issues such as grooming, mobility, and support systems; health and nutrition; recreation; relationships with family members and friends; and overall quality of life." "The authors also examine the influence of disability polices and programs on all of these factors and suggest future directions." - (publisher's description)
