American Women’s History: A Very Short Introduction, Susan Ware, 2015.
At 118 pages and measuring only 6.75 x 4.5 inches, this is indeed a very short book (albeit it with small type) spanning American women’s history from Pocahantas to the 21st century. As one reader wrote, “It's a short-but-comprehensive introduction to American women's history. It views women's struggle for gender equality from the lens of class and race. All landmark events in American history are rewritten with women included in the story.”
Join us over a glass of wine as we bone up on how women have been working over the course of American history to gain an equal place in our society.
