Summary
  • "Christina Wolbrecht's book advances our understanding of the ties between American parties and women's issues in a way that forces us to rethink traditional notions of how voting changed with the addition of women to the electorate. "The Politics of Women's Rights" is likely to cause a significant stir among voting behavior scholars as it argues against the current view that we are in an 'anti-party' age, with parties too weak to usher in realignments or significantly reshape public issues. This book, by contrast, tells a story of 'gendered' parties, which has up to now been largely unacknowledged."--Anne Costain, University of Colorado, Boulder
  • ""The Politics of Women's Rights" is an excellent book, written in a clear and engaging style and filled with insightful analysis. There has been too little attention directed to the way women's rights have polarized the two major parties. This book will appeal to a wide range of social scientists."--Eileen McDonagh, Northeastern University
