Women s America Book Description :

The third edition of this widely-acclaimed anthology integrates the best of recent scholarship in women's history with American history as a whole. A new introductory essay explains the ways in which the historical experiences of men and women in the United States have diverged, and traces the way in which gender has been socially constructed. Some seventy-five essays and documents--ranging from a letter written by a slave woman to an analysis of contemporary feminism--guide the reader to an understanding of the interaction of race, class, and gender throughout American history. With its wealth of primary and secondary source material, a revised appendix of essential legal documents, concise headnotes, and clear, chronological organization, the third edition of Women's America shows with new force and vigor why gender has become a powerful analytical device for those seeking to understand the history of the United States.

American Women s History Book Description :

"This Very Short Introduction explores the major transformations in American women's lives, ranging from political activism to popular culture, the workforce, and the family. Beginning in early America, it places gender at the center of American history, making it clear that women's experiences were not always the same as men's. Susan Ware shows how women's domestic and waged labor shaped the northern economy and how slavery affected the lives of both free and enslaved southern women. She moves through the tumultuous decades of industrialization and urbanization, describing the nineteenth-century movements led by women (temperance, moral reform, and suffrage). The book culminates in twentieth-century female activism for civil rights and successive waves of feminism. From Anne Bradstreet to Ida B. Wells to Eleanor Roosevelt, this book recognizes women as a force in American history and, more important, tells women's history as American history." -- Front cover flap.
