Affirmative action in government is important not only for the equitable distribution of employment opportunities but as a symbol of the nation's commitment to end discrimination against minorities and women and to make government more responsive to their interests. This article examines the development of affirmative action policy in employment at the federal, state, and local levels. Recent federal political appointments are noted. Research that has attempted to assess the effects of affirmative action is discussed.
