In a unique departure from the usual stereotypes, Susan Ostrander gained access to this elite community and interviewed the women in one U.S. region to study their roles, activities, and self-images. Among her conclusions, Ostrander shows that although these women are economically and socially powerful, they are for the most part, unliberated, being subservient to their husbands and to their duty to bear and raise children. In the series Women in the Political Economy, edited by Ronnie J. Steinberg.
Susan A. Ostrander is Professor of Sociology at Tufts University.
