 "Jenkins provides a fresh approach to and a timely analysis of women's political engagement. Mothers, Daughters, and Political Socialization is a lively read, featuring captivating and compelling stories and life histories. This book will fill important gaps in our understanding of the persistence of gender inequality and women’s attitudes toward feminism and the women's movement."Verta Taylor, Professor and Chair of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara
