Cross-disciplinary references related to women's issues are few and far between. Now Gale fills that gap with Women's Firsts, a new resource that utilizes history, sociology and literature to identify first-time accomplishments, honors and other landmark "firsts' of women throughout the world.
Coverage includes achievements in all fields of endeavor from ancient times to the present, with special emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. Ranging from 25 to 100 words in length, entries identify the breakthrough or achievement, describe it and summarize its context. In addition to brief biographies on notable individuals, Women's Firsts also provides readers with additional sources for further study.
