Description: In recent decades, the role of women in the nineteenth century has generated a wealth of interdisciplinary scholarship. This volume brings together the most significant scholarship available in a concise, "one-stop" resource, providing both accessible overview articles and alphabetical encyclopedia-like entries. The authors emphasize areas in which scholars have identified important changes (such as suffrage and reform), illuminate areas in which researchers are now making great strides (such as racial, ethnic, religious, and regional diversity), and incorporate innovative and relatively recent explorations (for example, work on female sexuality) into a comprehensive, easy-to-use format.

Part 1 provides an historiographical essay followed by a narrative overview of ten chapters. These chapters include discussions of families and households, labor and the workforce, religion and morality, feminism and equal rights, reform and voluntarism, and more.

Part 2 is an A-to-Z listing of concise explanations of terms, notable figures, political movements, social and religious organizations, laws, doctrines, and more.

Part 3 is an annotated chronology placing events in a historical context.

Part 4 offers a topically organized selection of resources for in-depth research, including general historical works, biographies and autobiographies, journals, archives, web sites, novels and films.
