A Timeline of Women in HistoryBook - 1995
The stories of both famous and little-known women in politics, medicine, science, sports, the arts, education, and everyday life around the world. Arranged chronologically, from the earliest writer known--male or female (she was Enheduanna, an Assyrian princess and poet) to outstanding women today (such as U.S. poet laureate Rita Dove). Because women have been ignored by historians for so long, it seemed women had no history. Many of the women whose lives are detailed here were major figures in their own times, while others became known only to later generations. Includes illustrations, quotations, and excerpts from notable documents in women's history. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
