Yesterday I added Career and Family: Women’s Century-Long Journey Toward Equality by: Claudia Goldin  and Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America by: Heather Cox Richardson to the Recommended Reading List.

Career and Family by Harvard faculty’s and recent Nobel Prize winner in Economic, Dr. Goldin, explores both the participation and compensation of women in America’s labor force over the last century or so.  It is must reading especially for young women starting with high school students.
