Being Female in America
Feminist groups have worked hard over the past century to raise awareness about gender inequities. But many of today's enduring differences between the female and male experience are still not widely obvious. This series examines the gender-based biases ensconced in the American way of life and invites readers to form their own opinions. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
