Riassunto: This book focuses on gender and civic membership in American constitutional politics from the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment through Second Wave Feminism. It examines how American civic membership is gendered, and how the terms of civic membership available to men and women shape their political identities, aspirations, and behavior. The book also explores the dynamics of American constitutional development through a focus on civic membership?a legal and political construct at the heart of the constitutional order.
This is a book about gender politics and constitutional development, and about what each of these can tell us about the other. It considers the options and choices faced by women?s rights activists in the United States as they voiced their claims for civic inclusion from Reconstruction through Second Wave Feminism, and it makes evident the limits of liberal citizenship for women.
Dal retro di copertina:
?In this original and exciting new book, Gretchen Ritter provides the first thorough gender-centered account of the way the United States Constitution was formulated and has evolved. The book is cleverly organized in terms of themes through which the post-Nineteenth Amendment Constitution has defined gender and the citizenship status of women in the United States. The Constitution as Social Design is a major work of scholarship and constitutional interpretation. It will become required reading for all scholars working in law and politics, gender studies, and American political development.??Desmond King, University of Oxford
?Ritter successfully argues that seeing the constitution as social design rather than merely a charter for rights allows us to reinterpret the meaning of citizenship. This book is a significant contribution to gender studies, constitutional history, and U.S. political development.??Julie Novkov, University of Oregon
