[brand-new book, tight, clean and flawless except for some extremely light surface wear to the jacket]. Women Then -- Women Now Series (B&W photographs) "The phenomenon of women lawyers is as recent as the women's rights movement that began in the late 1960s, but the struggle of women to obtain equality before the bar is as old as the United States. Beginning with Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams, the history of women and the law is recounted with narrative richness in this book. Women's efforts to gain a foothold in the law are considered in the context of the movements of the times, such as the abolitionist movement in the nineteenth century. Fascinating anecdotes about important though little-known women reveal their many-sided [efforts] to enter the legal profession. The contribution of African-American and Latina women are detailed." ("A Franklin Watts Library Edition," but NOT an ex-library book.)
