Synopsis

A comprehensive and stimulating examination of how the migration of women affects attitudes in receiving countries, among the women themselves, and how changing women's attitudes shapes their relations with men and between generations within ethnic groups.

Marianne Githens, Professor of Political Science and founder and previous director of Goucher College's Women's Studies Program, has written extensively on the topic of women and politics. An early work, A Portrait of Marginality, is widely regarded as a classic in the field. Her other publications include Different Roles, Different Voices, Abortion Politics, Public Policy in Cross Cultural Perspective, and numerous articles, including the well-known and frequently cited, 'Getting Appointed to the Court: The Gender Dimension." She has served as a major research consultant to the European Women Project sponsored by the European Union and to the television series Shoulder to Shoulder which dealt with the British suffrage movement. Professor Githens has received a number of awards including a NEH grant for research on American and European women's peace movements. Recently her research has focused on women immigrants and the various forces which affect their status and political role.
