The Political Integration of Women

Roles, Socialization, and Politics

This is the first major examination of the joint effects of marriage, motherhood, homemaking, and gender ideology on the political orientation of women who have become adults since the rise of the contemporary women's movement.

"Sapiro approaches the literature with great intelligence, thorough mastery, a fine sense of humor, and (most important) a good deal of skepticism. Her attempts at demythologizing 'common wisdom' and social science findings make this a most provocative and useful book."
-- Political Science Quarterly

"An excellent study. . . . Highly recommended for public, college, and university libraries."
