|The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family by Madeleine M. Kunin Feminists opened up thousands of doors in the 1960s and 1970s, but decades later, are U.S. women where they thought they’d be? The answer, it turns out, is a resounding no. It’s time, says Madeleine M. Kunin, to change that. Looking back over five decades of advocacy, she analyzes where progress stalled, looks at the successes of other countries, and charts the course for the next feminist revolution—one that calls for the kind of government and workplace policies that can improve the lives of women and strengthen their families. Available in early April!|
