About this product
- DescriptionIn 1911 as progressivism moved toward its zenith, the state of California granted women the right to vote. However, women's political involvement in California's public life did t begin with suffrage, r did it end there. Across the state, women had been deeply involved in politics long before suffrage, and-although their tactics and objectives changed-they remained deeply involved thereafter. California Women and Politics examines the wide array of women's public activism from the 1850s to 1929-including the temperance movement, moral reform, conservation, trade unionism, settlement work, philanthropy, wartime volunteerism, and more-and reveals unexpected contours to women's politics in California. The contributors consider t only white middle-class women's organizing but also the politics of working-class women and women of color, emphasizing that there was t one molithic women's agenda, but rather a multiplicity of women's voices demanding recognition for a variety of causes.
