Reexamining history from a female perspective, this book celebrates the pivotal but less well-known roles women have played in culture and society.
Packed full of evocative images, this gloriously illustrated book
reveals the key events in women's history--from early matriarchal
societies through women's suffrage, the Suffragette movement,
20th-century feminism, and gender politics, to recent movements
such as #MeToo and International Women's Day--and the key role
women have had in shaping our past.
Learn about the everyday lives of women through the ages as well as
the big names of women's history--powerful, inspirational, and
trailblazing women such as Cleopatra, Florence Nightingale,
Emmeline Pankhurst, Eva Peron, and Rosa Parks--and discover the
unsung contributions of lesser-known women who have changed the
world, and the "forgotten" events of women's history.
Placing women firmly center stage, Women: Our Story shows
women where they came from, and in celebrating the achievements of
women of the past, offers positive role models for women of today.
