Citizens by Degree: Higher Education Policy and the Changing Gender Dynamics of American Citizenship

Abstract:

Author, Deondra Rose, shows that gender progress derives in large part from the actions of lawmakers who used a combination of redistributive and regulartory higher education policies to enhance women's incorporation into their roles as American citizens. Examining the development and impact of the National Defense Education Act of 1958, the Higher Education Act of 1965, and Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments, Rose argues that higher education policies represent a crucial factor in women's movement toward first-class citizenship.
