USAbroad – Journal of American History and Politics, “Gender and Empowerment in American History and Politics

We are pleased to announce that the fourth issue of USAbroad – Journal of American History and Politics, “Gender and Empowerment in American History and Politics”, can be downloaded for free at the following address: https://usabroad.unibo.it/issue/view/954

The issue looks at gender and empowerment in the history and politics of the United States by exploring a broad spectrum of themes: the intertwining between institutional change, political change and processes of empowerment as well as the role of ideas and culture in shaping the understanding of gender and gender roles in American society. While gender is the main focus of the issue, our goal has been to include essays that use intersectionality as a framework, thus looking at the interplay of gender and race, class, religion, and social background in shaping individuals’ and groups’ activism and empowerment processes.

We hope that you will enjoy the issue and we look forward to receiving your comments and feedback.

Best regards,

The USAbroad Editorial Team
