This textbook for courses on women and politics thematically integrates two profound historical developments focusing on women's political participation in contemporary public life in the United States. The second wave of women’s rights activism has now spanned a half century producing a revolution in women’s presence and influence in the public realm of American life. Over the course of this same era, however, a second phenomenon of rising economic inequality has also dramatically changed the American landscape. Burrell’s text uniquely examines the effect of the age of inequality on women’s advancement toward economic and political equality and in turn how policy initiatives of the women’s movement have addressed inequality issues. Students will come to better understand what’s at stake in the politics and policy issues from the women’s rights movement to the "war on women" debate. Explaining a diverse set of issues and viewpoints, Burrell brings a fresh approach to the engagement of women in the public realm over the past half century. Framing this activism in the great economic divide of the same time period provides a thought-provoking, challenging, and broad thematic approach to this history. The text chronicles the many diverse types of actions women have taken in the contemporary era to achieve gender equity, empowerment, and a greater public voice. Women—both liberal feminist and conservative— have run for and been elected to positions of leadership at all levels of government. Women have formed organizations to lobby for equity in employment and education, in the military and to promote reproductive rights. They have engaged in unconventional political activities marching against and protesting the actions and policies of economic corporations and governmental institutions. Women with few economic resources have joined together to challenge local power structures. In addition to efforts to improve the lives and status of women in the United States, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have formed to promote global women’s rights. Readers of this text will gain a great appreciation of the multiple political voices of American women and the challenges to continued unequal voices.

Cracked But Not Shattered: Hillary Rodham Clinton's Unsuccessful Campaign for the Presidency thoroughly analyzes Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination with an eye to identifying what went wrong_why, as the frontrunner, she ended up not breaking 'the glass ceiling.' The volume's contributors examine multiple issues in attempt to answer this question, from usual campaign communication topics such as Clinton's rhetoric, debate performance, and advertising to the ways in which she was treated by the media. Although her communication was flawed and the media coverage of her did reflect biases, these essays demonstrate how Clinton's campaign was in trouble from the start because of her gender, status as a former First Lady, and being half of a political couple. Cracked But Not Shattered provides keen insight into the historic 2008 democratic primaries that will particularly intrigue scholars and students of political communications.

Women in Media Careers takes an in-depth look at women's careers in mass media by outlining job descriptions and providing insider tips on how to begin a career. By investigating positions held by women in top media-owning conglomerates, authors Lee Bollinger and Carole O'Neill assert that while women in the media still struggle against the impenetrable glass ceiling, vibrant changes in the industry have left that ceiling more permeable than ever. Women are inching their way into the executive positions at top media conglomerates making them major power players in the industry. After comparing employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the top Fortune 500 media companies, Bollinger and O'Neill emphasize that despite the great odds set against women, they are succeeding in blazing a career path in mass media. Also discussed are the extraordinary women of the media industry who have gone beyond all boundaries and have succeeded in multiple genres of media or entertainment. Informative and inspiring, Bollinger and O'Neill's encouraging book offers women a reliable resource on the career opportunities in the mass media industry and how they can succeed in securing a position at the top.
