Overview

"Women of Our Time is a photographic celebration of seventy-five of the most creative, humane, controversial, witty, brave, beautiful, and inspirational women of the twentieth century. These revealing portraits, by an array of distinguished photographers, show women who have reached the summit of achievement in politics, business, art, sports, performance, music, humanitarianism, and science." "There are rarely seen photographs of women such as Marilyn Monroe, Helena Rubinstein, Hannah Arendt, Billie Holiday, Gloria Steinem, Sylvia Plath, and many others - women who have broken new gound and redefined their field. Many of these images show their subjects at pivotal moments in their careers, and every portrait is accompanied by a brief biography that not only highlights each woman's distinctive contributions and achievements, but also how she was viewed by her contemporaries." With a preface by Cokie Roberts, Women of Our Time is a magnificent tribute to women who have helped to define the modern age, and a beautiful and thought-provoking gift for anyone interested in the contribution to twentieth-century life made by these extraordinary women.

    A TRIBUTE TO WOMEN AND TO HUMANKIND

    Seventy-five of the most noted women of the recent past are remembered by a roster of outstanding photographers in this stunning volume. Each photo, which captures the subject at the height of her achievements, is accompanied by a biography detailing contributions made and public response. All of the photos capture the essence of the woman, as Cokie Roberts remarks in the Preface: "Look into the eyes of the subjects of these photographs and you see the triumphs, failures, hopes, and disappointments of some of the truly talented women of our time." The album is a diverse collection of unique women, from Helen Keller to Dorothy Parker to Gertrude Stein to Gypsy Rose Lee to Shirley Temple to Ella Fitzgerald. We learn that upon Grandma Moses's first visit to New York City she "told reporters, `It's nice to be here, but the city doesn't appeal to me.' `As picture material?' someone asked. `As any material,' she answered." And, we discover that Joan Baez remembers singing the civil rights movement's anthem "We Shall Overcome" at the Lincoln Memorial, by saying, "...one of the medals which hangs over my heart I awarded to myself for having been asked to sing that day." The revelatory photos and essays found in "Women Of Our Time" are a tribute to women, to our age, and to humankind.
