Abstract

This book explores the origins and history of the debate over the Equal Rights Amendment (the ERA). Co-authored with the late Hal Draper, the book explores the competition between two different approaches to the rights of women workers. These approaches can be characterized broadly as the "pure" feminist approach of Alice Paul and the National Organization for Women and the "social" feminist approach advocated by Florence Kelley and Eleanor Roosevelt. Special attention is paid to the battle between union women in California with the California branch of the NOW.
