“Women On Wednesdays”: Rebecca DeWolf - “Gendered Citizenship”
As part of our “Women on Wednesdays” series, American University's Women & Politics Institute hosted a virtual conversation with American University Alumna Dr. Rebecca DeWolf, author of the book, "Gendered Citizenship: The Original Conflict over the Equal Rights Amendment, 1920–1963" and WPI Executive Director Betsy Fischer Martin. The first full-length comprehensive study of the original conflict over the Equal Rights Amendment, "Gendered Citizenship", provides readers with rich context to “trace how the arguments against gender equality of nearly a century ago continue to shape our cultural attitudes about the role and duties of women in the domestic sphere today.” Ultimately, Dr. Rebecca DeWolf reveals how the original conflict “became the defining narrative for the changing nature of American citizenship in the era.” Order the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Gendered-Citizenship-Original-Amendment-1920-1963/dp/1496227956?crid=QE8W3PCUISIP&dchild=1&keywords=gendered+citizenship&qid=1619795187&sprefix=gendered+citizen,aps,205&sr=8-2&fbclid=IwAR2AOS7hxfEU8FbE8_VSj2YecPT8VUzINLhhrAnIRc2TErO3PIC7DfCYhWs&linkCode=sl1&tag=wpi02-20&linkId=a34261867711dea9f340501c87c0e4ba&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl

Gendered Citizenship with Rebecca DeWolf
By engaging deeply with American legal and political history as well as the increasingly rich material on gender history, Gendered Citizenship illuminates the ideological contours of the original struggle over the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) from 1920 to 1963. The first comprehensive, full-length history of that struggle, this book grapples not only with the battle over women’s constitutional status but also with the more than forty-year mission to articulate the boundaries of what it means to be an American citizen. DeWolf explores how this conflict around the ERA ultimately became the defining narrative for the changing nature of American citizenship in the era.
