The new feminist agenda : defining the next revolution for women, work, and family by Madeleine Kunin ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Feminists opened up thousands of doors in the 1960s and 1970s, but decades later, are U.S. women where they thought they would be? The answer, it turns out, is a resounding no. Surely there have been gains. Women now comprise nearly 60 percent of college undergraduates and half of all medical and law students. They have entered the workforce in record numbers, making the two wage earner family the norm. But combining a career and family turned out to be more complicated than expected. While women changed, social structures surrounding work and family remained static. Affordable and high quality child care, paid family leave, and equal pay for equal work remain elusive for the vast majority of working women. In fact, the nation has fallen far behind other parts of the world on the gender equity front. We lag behind more than seventy countries when it comes to the percentage of women holding elected federal offices. Only 17 percent of corporate boards include women members. And just 5 percent of Fortune 500 companies are led by women. It is time, says the author, to change all that. Looking back over five decades of advocacy, she analyzes where progress stalled, looks at the successes of other countries, and charts the course for the next feminist revolution, one that mobilizes women, and men, to call for the kind of government and workplace policies that can improve the lives of women and strengthen their families
Pearls, politics, & power : how women can win and lead by Madeleine Kunin ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pearls, Politics, and Power is a call to action for new political engagement and leadership from the women of America. Informed by conversations with elected women leaders from all levels, former three-term Vermont Governor and Ambassador to Switzerland Madeleine M. Kunin asks: What difference do women make? What is the worst part of politics, and what is the best? What inspired these women to run, and how did they prepare themselves for public life? How did they raise money, protect their families' privacy, deal with criticism and attack ads, and work with the good old boys?" "Kunin's core message is that America needs an infusion of new leadership to better address the major problems of our time. To see how women can achieve that goal, she combines her personal experience in politics; the lessons of past women's movements; the stories of young women today who have new ideas about their role in society; and interviews with a wide range of women in positions of power, looking for clues to their leadership, as well as the effects of gender stereotyping."--BOOK JACKET
We do! : American leaders who believe in marriage equality by Madeleine Kunin ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Remember when gay marriage was the easiest way to inflame an otherwise mild electorate' This volume demonstrates, through speeches, interviews, and commentary, the encouraging story of American acceptance of gay marriage and the roles that politicians'gay and straight'have played in that history. This movement, like all civil rights movements, began with individuals telling the truth about who they are to a world that doesn't accept them. It ends with an entire generation of young people who reject blatant civil rights discrimination. From Supervisor Harvey Milk articulating in 1978 why gay people in all fields must be out and visible ('For invisible, we remain in limbo'a myth, a person with no parents, no brothers, no sisters, no friends who are straight, no important positions in employment'); to Governor Andrew Cuomo blinking back tears as he discusses his pride in making gay marriage a reality in New York in 2011; to President Obama's unprecedented support; and the courage of many other American politicians'We Do! triumphantly chronicles this recent chapter of our history
