By engaging deeply with United States' legal and political history, Gendered Citizenship  illuminates the ideological contours of the original struggle over the ERA. Through an  examination of almost-forty different archival collections, several court cases, and a  multitude of government documents, Gendered Citizenship explores the array of both men  and women who participated in the original conflict. In the process, Gendered Citizenship  takes the struggle over the ERA in an entirely new direction. Rather than focusing on the  familiar theme of why the ERA failed to gain enactment, Gendered Citizenship explores how  the debates over the ERA transcended traditional political divides in the early to mid twentieth-century United States and ultimately redefined the concept of citizenship in the  United States.
