The contributors to this volume seek to prove in various ways that women are competent, responsible individuals who do not need special protections and dispensations from the state; nor do they need to have standards lowered for them to be able to compete effectively for jobs or acceptances to institutions of higher education. Using careful research and objective interpretation of data derived from well-designed studies, these essays examine such diverse issues as Freud and his contributions to feminism; how men and women relate to one another in the workplace and what they learn from each other by working together; how American feminists are perceived by leaders of foreign women's movements; and how the claims of women for refugee status in war-ridden societies such as Haiti and El Salvador are neglected and denied. Copublished with the Women's Freedom Network. Contributors: Deborah Anker; Asa Baber; Margaret Brinig; Jean Bethke Elshtain; Judith Simon Garrett; Neil Gilbert; Edith Kurzweil; Anne P. Mitchell; Jennifer Roback Morse; June Ellenoff O'Neill; Virginia I. Postrel; Stanley Rothman; Rita J. Simon; Christina Hoff Sommers; Tama Starr; Deborah Walker; Cathy Young.
