Among those making their first appearance in the Dictionary are: Madeline Albright, Aung San Suu Kyi, Roseanne Barr, Tina Brown, Jane Campion, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Phoolan Devi, Susan Faludi, Catherine Mackinnon, Sally Mugabe, Lata Mangeshkar, Wangari Maathai, Camille Paglia, Anne Rice, Stella Rimington, Mary Robinson, Anita Roddick, Claire Short, Albertina Sisulu, Emma Thompson, Vivienne Westwood, and Naomi Wolf. The Northeastern Dictionary of Women's Biography features a user-friendly subject index and a comprehensive bibliography of additional reference sources. A celebration of the lives of remarkable women, this unique book is an indispensable reference for students and general readers alike.
