The 200 key events featured in this book range from early colonial times to our own century, covering such issues as work, family life, social reform, and equal rights.

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:
