Review: How the West was won — and lost — by women: A new history revises the record
There was a time when women were not so far apart on economic matters from their male counterparts. But in the decades since World War II, women have made remarkable efforts to establish their status in society.
In this new book, Susan Faludi, a well-known scholar who won a Pulitzer Prize for her book Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women, tells the fascinating story of women and work.
She presents a history of the American women’s movement — and an extraordinary picture of what women went through just to be considered for positions worthy of respect in the workplace, whether in the home or working with men.
I had a chance to talk with Faludi, author of many books on women and work, as well as a feminist, about the book.
