Description
Far more than a historical subcategory, women have been driving forces behind world war politics, global migration, maternal welfare, sexual revolution, and modern labor movements. In A Century of Women, renowned historian Sheila Rowbotham charts, decade by decade, the changes in the lives of women and the ways they themselves have uniquely shaped history since 1900. From women who marched for the vote, stood on picket lines, or refused to be segregated, to politicians, poets, and film stars, their stories are told in rich detail.

Throughout the book are entertaining essays on body and image, popular fiction, lesbian culture, the automobile, Barbie dolls, and more; a final section gathers biographies of four hundred notable women. Thoroughly engrossing and unrivaled in scope, A Century of Women provides a wealth of information on the rich, complex, and tumultuous lives of the women who have left an indelible mark on our century.
