The Paradox of Gender Equality

How American Women's Groups Gained and Lost Their Public Voice

University of Michigan Press 2013

purchase at bookshop.org Kristin A. Goss is author of The Paradox of Gender Equality: How American Women's Groups Gained and Lost Their Public Voice (University of Michigan Press 2013). She is associate professor of public policy and political science at Duke University. Goss challenges the conventional wisdom about women's group with new congressional hearing data. Rather than ebbing-and-flowing like waves, Goss suggests that the women's groups have not always diminished in influence following a major policy success. The Paradox of Gender Equality should have a wide audience among interest group, gender studies, and social movement scholars.
