From Father's Property to Children's Rights: The History of Child Custody

The author examines "child custody through five historical periods:
Colonial English common-law tradition giving fathers rights over children;
the first century of the Republic emphasizing 'mothers' love';
the Progressive Era reforms (1890-1920);
attention to 'best interest of the child' (1960-1990);
and the current ascendancy of social science in custody decisions.

Mason {attempts to} link the changing status of women with child custody issues and pointsout {what she views as} the persistence of a two-tiered system that provides differently for poor children than for children with supporting parents."
