    I think it was certainly more than the pill that led to an increase in women
    in the workplace.  And obviously the terms "feminism" and "women's movement"
    are so broad as to be almost vacuous.  There are experts on this list who
    can certainly respond in more detail.  And I'd be interested in suggestions
    of a book or two that give a fair and balanced view of the nature and causes
    of these gains for women--suitable for an academic who knows some but not a
    lot about the issue.
