About this title

Synopsis:

This photo-filled celebration of extraordinary 20th-century women highlights women's contributions in politics, child care, science, education, athletics, literature, entertainment, art, and more. 200+ photos. **Barbara Walters is hosting a 90-minute TV special based on " Ladies' Home Journal's" list of the 20th-century's most important women on Friday, April 30, 1999, at 9:30 PM, Eastern Daylight Time on ABC-TV. The special will include Barbara's interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, and Gloria Steinem.

Review:

100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century is a gift book, with photographs and short essays on influential women around the world, ranging from writers and scientists to politicians and athletes, and from progressive figures like Oprah Winfrey and Eleanor Roosevelt to reactionaries like anti-feminist Phyllis Schafly and ruthless Madame Mao (Jiang Qing). Although the essays on even the most famous figures, such as Billie Jean King or Princess Diana, are well-written and interesting, the best thing about this book is that it calls to mind wonderful women whose names have lost their currency, among them Jane Addams, who cofounded Chicago's Hull House and was vitally involved in the formation of the ACLU, and Carrie Chapman Catt, who formed the League of Women Voters. The foreword by Barbara Walters, who has interviewed many of the women included, describes her own difficulties in establishing a career as a television journalist (even after she was allowed on the air, she was referred to as "the Today girl") and celebrates the new opportunities made possible by these leading women. --Regina Marler
