Description

The first 10 volumes of The Young Oxford History of Women in the United States trace the path women followed over the past four centuries and tell the stories of individuals--famous and less well-known--who fought for women's social and political equality. This Biographical Supplement and Index rounds out the series with the personal histories of almost 250 of these women. Each biography is a "snapshot" of its subject--what she accomplished, how she lived, and what she believed. Among the remarkable women featured here are Jane Addams, social reformer and founder of Hull House; Mary McLeod Bethune, African-American educator and clubwoman; Betty Friedan, whose writing helped to spark the contemporary feminist movement; Georgia O'Keeffe, the celebrated artist of the Southwest; Sarah Winnemucca, Native American activist; and Mildred (Babe) Didrikson Zaharias, the famous professional golfer. TheBiographical Supplement and Index presents their fascinating life stories and those of other women who have helped to shape our nation's history. The volume also contains a complete index to the series and includes a listing of museum, historic sites, and web sites related to the history of American women.show more
