Description - Antifeminism in America by Gillian Swanson

The documents in this paperback inform the reader's understanding and appreciation of the social and political context of opposition in which the advocates of women's rights labored from 1848 to 1996. Arranged in six parts by historical periods, these original articles from mainstream magazines, specialized and academic journals, and books display the tone and substance of opposition to women's rights as it appeared in popular literature. The selections reflect the public campaign, fought in the popular press, of opponents to the fundamental goal of all aspects of movement for women's rights, to challenge the gender system by advocating equality for women.
