Library Journal Review

With its eighth biennial volume, the Women's Research and Education Institute again offers a collection of valuable current information concerning American women. This edition focuses on women filling leadership roles in politics, education, business, labor, and the military. Five essays by experts provide a narrative overview, prefacing about 150 pages of tables and charts that cover demographics, education, health, employment, earnings and benefits, economic security, women in the military, and women in government. The volume concludes with a brief discussion of women's issues in the 105th Congress (1997-98) and biographies of the female members of the 106th Congress (1999-2000). With an introduction by Jean Stapleton; recommended for all libraries. Cynthia Harrison, George Washington Univ., Washington, DC (c) Copyright 2010.
