Publication Date: 1990-09-01
Steven Buecheler has written a comparative sociological analysis of the woman suffrage movement (1840s-1920) and the contemporary women's movement (1960s to the present). His identification of similarities and differences between these movements reveals persistent feminist issues over time, as well as the distinctive concerns of each movement in the socio-historical context. He compares these two movements in terms of their origins, organizations, ideologies, class and racial diversities, countermovement's and outcomes.Buecheler explains why women's movements arise, the forms of organization they adopt, the diversity of ideologies they espouse, and their class and racial composition.
