Women's Action Almanac: A Complete Resource Guide.
Williamson, Jane, Ed.; And Others
Designed to provide answers to questions on women's issues and programs, the guide is arranged into two parts. Part 1, which comprises about three-fourths of the guide, contains background information and answers to often asked questions on 84 issues, such as abortion, affirmative action, battered women, divorce, incest, and insurance. Each entry includes historical background, current status, and statistics. Also included for each social issue is a list of pertinent national women's organizations (and in some cases local groups) and a selection of print resources. Part 2 is a directory of national women's organizations and women's caucuses or divisions of national organizations. Addresses and telephone numbers are provided and goals and programs are described.
