IndexAbout the Author
In We Will Be Heard, noted political scientist Jo Freeman chronicles the struggles of women in the United States for political power. Fifteen case studies of women''s struggles for political influence provide the historical context for today''s political events. Starting with a general overview, the three sections of the book look at different ways in which women have broken barriers, practiced politics, and promoted public policy.
