Yet these major achievements have hardly been recognized in histories of twentieth-century Texas. By contrast, Texas Through Womens Eyes offers a fascinating overview of womens experiences and achievements in the twentieth century, with an inclusive focus on rural women, working-class women, and women of color.McArthur and Smith trace the history of Texas women through four eras. They discuss how women entered the public sphere to work for social reforms and the right to vote during the Progressive era (1900 1920)- how they continued working for reform and social justice and for greater opportunities in education and the workforce during the Great Depression and World War II (1920 1945)- how African American and Mexican American women fought for labor and civil rights while Anglo women laid the foundation for two-party politics during the postwar years (1945 1965)- and how second-wave feminists (1965 2000) promoted diverse and sometimes competing goals, including passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, reproductive freedom, gender equity in sports, and the rise of the New Right and the Republican party.
