Being Female in America
Feminist groups have worked hard over the past century to raise awareness about gender inequities. But many of today's enduring differences between the female and male experience are still not widely obvious. This series examines the gender-based biases ensconced in the American way of life and invites readers to form their own opinions. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
In this six-set series, each of the books follows the same format with reference aids at the end that include essential facts, glossary, additional resources, source notes, and index. In addition, each of the books includes discussion starters at the end of the chapter, captioned color photographs, and thought-provoking text boxes. Each title in the series addresses current issues related to being female in the United States—issues such as sexism in politics and in the media, sexism at work, male privilege, and the intersectionality of sex and race. A groundbreaking exploration of being female in the U.S. that will generate rich discussion and help students understand the historical context of women’s hard-fought pursuit of equal rights. Highly Recommended.
