This comprehensive synthesis of women's history from the 17th century to the present draws on the past three decades of scholarship in the field. Its unique paired-chapter format couples a narrative "episode" that vividly evokes a particular individual or event with a synthesis chapter that places each episode carefully within its broader historical context. This pairing of the concrete and specific with the general and historic creates the most compelling reading experience available in a survey of U.S. women's history. It's the only text that lets your students see, hear, and understand women making history. Now in a thoroughly updated Third Edition, which captures and reflects the most recent scholarship in this dynamic field and offers expanded attention to diversity and ethnicity.
