Connecting Spheres : Women in the Western World, 1500 to the Present
Combining modern feminist thought with the main themes of Western civilization, this book puts women back into history. From Italy to Kenya, from Britain to Russia, it examines the impact of religious reformation, political centralization, scientific, industrial, and political revolutions, world markets, and welfare states on women of diverse backgrounds, occupations, and classes, and demonstrates that they have indeed had a profound influence on Western history in the last 500 years.
