A landmark work in its first edition, this critically acclaimed text has been updated to incorporate the greatly strengthened and enlarged insights of feminist theory and practice, and the enormous changes in women's studies since the original edition's debut in 1983. The new edition covers the most recent developments for women in politics, labor, and the changing family dynamic, and pays particular attention to women of color and ethnicity. The authors present a wide array of literature, exploring controversial topics that are of day-to-day concern for women, from racism and homophobia to class conflict and discrimination. Examining women's lives as individuals, as family members, and as a force in the greater social fabric, the second edition of Women's Realities, Women's Choices remains the most timely, comprehensive, and compelling introduction to the increasingly vital field of women's studies.
