ANN: New Book: Revolutionizing Expectations

I’d like to announce the publication of my book Revolutionizing Expectations: Women’s Organizations, Feminism, and American Politics, 1965-1980, by the University of Georgia Press. The book explores the 1970s women’s movement in Denver, CO, Durham, NC, and Indianapolis, IN, and tells the story not only of local NOW chapters but also the feminist activism of Leagues of Women Voters, YWCAs, and other religious women’s groups.

Hi All,

"Social Changes for Women in the German Workforce: 1945-2014"

For a course I am taking called, “The World: 1945-present,” I am writing a “change over time” paper about women in the German workforce from the end of World War II until the present. My paper, titled “Social Changes for Women in the German Workforce: 1945-2014,” will have a social perspective and focus on the different employment opportunities for women who lived in East vs. West Germany during the Cold War and how the later reunification of Germany in 1989 affected women’s work. Then, I will look at the job situation for women living in Germany today.
