Women and Public Policies, praised by Janet Boles as "the first attempt to deal with several women's policies in a systematic manner within a common framework," analyzes how the women's movement of the 1970s influenced federal policy. The authors treat four issues- credit, education, pregnancy disability, and abortion rights- as case studies, measuring the successes and failures of the women's movement in these representative policy areas.
