When Women Didn't Count: Review on Gov-Stuff 4 U

Thanks to Lori L. Smith for the kind words at Gov Stuff 4 U. 

In the book, society's (and government's) changing attitudes toward women are chronicled through statistics on marriage, motherhood, heads of households, occupations, health, crime, and military service, among other topics. The focus isn't on the statistics themselves, but on how and why they were collected as they were. It is, indeed, both fascinating and disturbing.
