Overview

Women's America, now in its fifth edition, has been extensively revised and contains 34 new selections including several original essays written especially for this edition by leading U.S. historians in the field. Successfully class-tested, these new essays feature more material on anti-feminist women and the impact of ethnicity in American culture. This new edition covers such diverse groups as nuns in early Chicago, Native American women on the Northwestern frontier, young Jewish labor organizers in the garment industry in turn-of-the-century New York, interracial activists in the segregated South, and Chicana feminists in the Southwest. The introductory and concluding essays have been revised and the bibliography has been entirely rewritten to take into account the growing body of recent literature in the field. Women's America is an essential text for courses in women's history and is a splendid supplement for more general survey courses on American history.
