Product Overview

Rymph examines the first 60 years of women's activism in the Republican Party, starting in 1920, when women gained the right to vote. She traces the formation of women's Republican clubs; the party's increasing dependence on the work of women at the grassroots in the postwar years; and the eventual mobilization of many of these women behind Barry Goldwater, in defiance of party leaders. Two groups of women emerged on a collision course: party insiders who called themselves feminists challenged Phyllis Schlafly's growing movement opposing the ERA. Their battles over the meanings of gender, power, and Republicanism helped shape the transformation the party would face during the Reagan years.
