Until recently, scholars assumed that women stopped speaking after they won the vote in 1920 and did not reenter political life until the second wave of feminism began in the 1960s. Nothing could be further from the truth. While national attention did dissipate after 1920, women did not retreat from political and civic life. Rather, after winning the vote, women's public activism shifted from a single-issue agenda to the myriad social problems and public issues that faced the nation. As such, women began to take their place in the public square as political actors in their own rights rather than strictly campaigning for a women's issue. This anthology documents women's activism during this period by introducing heretofore unpublished public speeches that address a wide array of debated topics including child labor, international relations, nuclear disarmament, consumerism, feminism and anti-feminism, social welfare, family life, war, and the environment. Some speeches were delivered in legislative forums, others at schools, churches, business meetings, and media events; still others before national political organizations. To ensure diversity, the volume features speakers of different ages, races, classes, ethnicities, geographic regions, and political persuasions. The volume editors include short biographical introductions as well as historical context for each selection.
The first edition of INTERNATIONAL SECURITIES REGULATION by Scott and Wellons presents major regulatory and policy issues about the international aspects of the world's securities markets. The first part covers securities regulation in the three major markets in the world: the United States, the European Union, and Japan. The chapter on Europe emphasises disclosure and the provision of services. International and offshore markets is the subject of the second part. One chapter deals with the markets for eurobonds and global securities. The second examines stock market competition in U.S. and foreign markets, as well as world-wide competition among the markets. The third presents international asset securitization at the transactional level, the evolving law in various markets (the US, Germany, Japan, and India), and the proposed rules for capital adequacy. This book is designed for use in conjunction with a general securities regulation course or as a separate course on international securities regulation.
