Boundaries of her body: the troubling history of women's rights in America
788 pages. No updates available.
In her strongly researched book, Rowland traces women's rights issues throughout the history of the United States. She begins her analysis by looking at gender inequality in the 1600s and continues on through the 1900s. Rowland then spends considerably more time discussing developments in the twentieth century, touching on women in the workforce, income inequality, pregnancy in the workplace, birth control and reproductive rights, and health care. Rowland also devotes a section of her book to female adolescence before continuing onto a discussion of violence against women. This publication comes with extensive endnotes/references and a subject index. (AL)
