Gendered Citizenship with Dr. Rebecca DeWolf

Gendered Citizenship with Dr. Rebecca DeWolf

Join me this week as I chat with author, historian and educator Dr. Rebecca DeWolf about her analysis of the early development of the Equal Rights Amendment. 

Dr. DeWolf wrote about the fight of the ERA in her book, Gendered Citizenship, which was one of my favorite books of 2021. In this episode, we discuss how the right to vote for women via the 19th amendment created a sense of constitutional uncertainty for the status of women and how various groups, coined as protectionists and emancipationists, debated over what it meant to provide women equality under the law.

You can read more about Dr. DeWolf and her work through her website at https://www.rebeccadewolf.com/

You can purchase your own copy of Gendered Citizenship through the University of Nebraska press (here).
