This book examines how the evolution of gender roles in the United States has changed family dynamics, business practices, and our concepts of womanhood and manhood as well as affected debates about equality, political and military service, and childrearing roles and practices. It provides firsthand experiences of women and men who have been on the front lines of these changes and different ideological perspectives on where men and women stand in American society today.
