My dissertation, "Debating Family Values: Women, Grassroots Politics, and the New Right," examines how a conservative definition of "family values" became ascendant in American politics and policy-making. I examined New York State in the 1970s and 1980s when feminist activism and an emerging conservative family values movement competed side-by-side to define the family. Relating local events to national political realignment, I illustrate how conservative activist, led by suburban women, shifted party politics to the right -- especially by concentrating on issues such as abortion, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and statesubsidized daycare.
