Despite the insistence of people who think sexism no longer exists in the United States, the facts say otherwise, and so do most women. Women have many legal rights, from voting to heading companies to holding political office. Socially, they are far from viewed as equal to men. Sexism begins at birth or even before. It continues throughout childhood and education, in the workplace, and in the family. This guidebook outlines sexism in action in all of these areas. It provides the reader with suggestions for dealing with problems created by sexism at all ages and in all areas of life.
