About the book:

A rich collection of lively and accessible readings and case studies, Gender and Public Policy is the first text of its kind and the ideal choice for the teaching of public policy issues as they relate to women and gender. The readings range widely over topics on family and reproductive issues, on economics and culture, and on womens issues in management and government. They include personal stories, court decisions, historical narratives, and several cases prepared especially for this volume. All were chosen for their demonstrated value for facilitating and focusing classroom discussion.Although the book as a whole reflects a firm commitment to feminism and the welfare of women, the selections represent a variety of views and ideologies, giving students the opportunity to re-evaluate traditional gender roles in different ways. Editorial introductions, comments, and suggestions for further reading appear throughout the book to help students place issues in an appropriate context.Gender and Public Policy will make an invaluable contribution to teaching in womens studies programs, schools of public policy, and business schools as well as in departments of political science, sociology, and philosophy that feature courses on womens issues.
