Description: Edited by acclaimed women's historian Nancy F. Cott, and boasting contributions by an illustrious group of renowned scholars, No Small Courage offers the finest account available of women's struggle for equality in America.

Attractively illustrated, with over a hundred historical pictures taken from a wide variety of sources, including newspapers and family scrapbooks, this superb history offers a vivid chronicle written by such noted historians as John Demos, Jane Kamensky, Sarah Deutsch, Elaine Tyler May, and William H. Chafe. Starting with Native American women confronting colonization, the book introduces a parade of remarkable women -- Abigail Adams and Phyllis Wheatley, Margaret Fuller and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ida B. Wells and Jane Addams, Mary McLeod Bethune and Zora Neale Hurston, and Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem. The contributors focus on real-life stories and primary sources -- including letters, diaries, and news reports -- to give readers a first-hand sense of how women lived and worked throughout our history. We see Anne Hutchinson's struggle to create a public role for herself in colonial Massachusetts, Emma Willard's fight for better educational opportunities for women, former slave Harriet Tubman's perilous efforts to free others in captivity, and Rosa Park's resistance to segregation in the South.

Boasting lovely illustrations, lively anecdotes, and skillfully written narratives by leading experts, No Small Courage captures the variety and importance of American women's experience, demonstrating that the history of our nation cannot be fully understood without focusing on changes in women's lives.
