Review:

Many books designed to pack your head with a few nuggets of wisdom are more annoying than interesting, but this one is very good. The usual standouts in American women's history appear--Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Eleanor Roosevelt--but so do many lesser-known women. The book is organized largely around political and popular events driven by women or that affected women's lives. Stretching from 1607 through the early 1990s, it comprises preventing childbirth deaths; Victoria Woodhulls's run for president (in 1872); Dolores Huerta's efforts to help form the United Farm Worker's Union; and Maya Angelou's poem at President Bill Clinton's 1993 inauguration.

About the Author:

Christine Lunardini is the author of From Equal Suffrage to Equal Rights: Alice Paul and the National Women's Party, 1910-1928, and The ABC/Clio Companion to the American Peace Movement. Formerly, she taught women's history and American political history at Princeton University and Barnard College.
