CONTENTS; PREFACE; INTRODUCTION; U.S. WOMEN'S INTEREST GROUPS; Appendix I: GOVERNMENTAL WOMEN'S ISSUES GROUPS; Appendix II: QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO WOMEN'S INTEREST GROUPS; INDEX; CONTRIBUTORS
No other reference analyzes the origins, development, programs, publications, and political action of 180 major American organizations concerned with women''s issues in such depth. Over 100 experts give an overview of how national women''s groups of all kinds and representing varied and broad segments of society have had an impact on a wide array of public policy issues in Washington in recent years. An introduction provides a content analysis, general background, and historical sketch for the profiles, which are arranged alphabetically. An appendix describes six government agencies of primary importance in handling women''s issues, as agenda setters and bridges. A second appendix consists of the questionnaire which was sent to each organization covered in the volume.||The alphabetically arranged profiles cover organizations with all types of goals and concerns, different racial and ethnic identification, church and temple affiliations: civil, elderly, professional, and occupational associations; social and sorority groups; labor and business organizations; not-for-profit and for-profit groups; research centers; and both partisan and nonpartisan organizations. Students, teachers, professionals in governmental and nongovernmental agencies, researchers, and citizen activists will find that this handy sourcebook is a treasury of authoritative information about how private citizens work to affect national policy and legislation in essential ways.
