As part of her research on social movements, Sarah Soule, a professor at the Graduate School of Business, has studied the movements that have galvanized women, including the Equal Rights Amendment, civil rights, abortion, peace, and education and welfare reform. She also explores the reactions to those movements, particularly the response of law enforcement authorities.
The Clayman Institute For Gender Research at Stanford produced a video of Soule discussing how law enforcement responded to specific women’s confrontations. In her recent book Contention and Corporate Social Responsibility, Soule also explores the issue.
