About this Item

Title
Laws affecting women and children in the suffrage and non-suffrage states
Summary
This book examines women's legal status in the areas of protective labor legislation for women and children, minimum wage laws, mothers' pensions, the property rights of married women, child custody, age of consent, control of the liquor traffic, and prostitution. Like Jessie Cassidy's "The legal status of women," this volume deals with each of these areas on a state-by-state basis. It includes a black-and-white pinwheel chart showing good and bad legislation affecting women, but few other tables or graphs.
