Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Some 300 biographical essays and 80 illustrations profile women (since the colonial period) whose lives have been especially significant in the history of the state, as well as women whose lives illustrate the diversity of women's experience in various periods of the state's development, and nationally known women who are connected with the state. The year 1923 was the cut-off date for inclusion because that was the year the Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced, by a New Jersey woman. Annotation c.
