Women, Philanthropy, and Civil Society (Philanthropic Studies)
Kathleen D. McCarthyISBN: 0253339189;
In the United States, philanthropic activity often enabled women to create parallel power structures that resembled, but rarely replicated, the commercial and political arenas of men. From nuns who managed charitable and educational institutions to political activists demanding an end to discriminatory practices against women and children, many of the women whose lives are documented in these pages claimed distinctive public roles through the nonprofit sphere.
