Angel Kwolek-Folland presents an authoritztive, much-needed survey of women in business from the 1600s to the present day. She introduces some of the women--famous, infamous, and forgotten--who have been central to business throughout US history as workers, managers, and professionals. This stimulating narrative challenges our expectations about both the history of women and the history of business as it focuses on the changing legal and social climate for women's economic activities through the centuries.

Review:

“The single best history of the varied roles women have played in American business from the colonial period to the present day.” —Mansel Blackford, Ohio State University

“A masterful, pathbreaking study that fills a huge gap in historical literature. Kwolek-Folland deserves a wide audience of scholars, students, and general readers.” —Edwin J. Perkins, University of Southern California
"By putting modern business into perspective, Incorporating Women reminds us that organizations remain important sites of gender struggle while still allowing us to recognize and celebrate the many and varied achievements of business women in America." --Susan Fountaine, WIMR
