Overview

When first published in 1984, Between Women broke ground in women's exploration of their creative works, and those of the women preceeding them. As a document of the complex relationships between writers, teachers and artists and the women who have moved, shaped and inspired them, this collection is still unmatched.

Routledge is proud to publish the updated edition of Between Women, with a foreword for this edition by Carolyn Heilbrun. The book brings together the stories of biographers, novelists, scholars and artists as they have written about their journeys (some literal, some figurative) they have made to their subjects. The essays draw forth honest admissions of how they chose the women, the biases and hopes they brought with them, and what insights they gained for themselves.

Contributors to this volume are: Carol Ascher, Myrtha Chabrán, Bell Chevigny, Michelle Cliff, Blanche Wiesen Cook, Louise DeSalve, Yi-Tsi Me Feuerwerker, Leah Glasser, Gloria (Akasha) Hull, Ann Jackowitz, Lynda Koolish, Jane Lazarre, Jane Marcus, Elizabeth Minnich, Sara Ruddick, Alix Kates Shulman, Janet Sternburg, Erlene Stetson, May Stevens, Meredith Tax, Boony Vaught, Alice Walker, Martha Wheelock, J. J. Wilson and Elizabeth Wood. Among the women discussed in the book are: Zora Neale Hurston, Simone Weil, May Sarton, Virginia Woolf, Rosa Luxemburg, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Hannah Arendt, and Ding Ling.

Between Women presents the reader with a legacy from women scholars and artists, and will interest those engaged in women's studies, literary criticism and history, political history, as well as general readers.
