Editorial Reviews


"The richness and variety of the voices represented in these essays will be useful in many ways. The breadth of the women’s experiences and the broad span of time their lives touched will ensure the work’s appeal to a wide audience."--Cynthia Griggs Fleming, author of In the Shadow of Selma: The Continuing Struggle for Civil Rights in the Rural South

"By focusing on the lives of individual women, known and unknown, over many years, this volume is an important addition to the history of Tennessee and the evolving history of southern women."--Anne Firor Scott, W.K.Boyd Professor Emerita, Duke University

"The authors of these well-researched and gracefully written biographical studies admirably capture the complexities of multitextured lives of diverse women who were often heroines on their own terms. Sarah Wilkerson Freeman and Beverly Greene Bond have edited an outstanding work, one that makes a major contribution to American women's history, southern history, and especially to the history of Tennessee."--Darlene Clark Hine, editor, Black Women in America

"This book makes a major contribution to American women’s history, southern history, and especially to the history of the Volunteer State."--The Courier

Tennessee Women provides a fascinating look at the lives of women who played public roles as activists, artists, athletes, and executives.”—LeeAnn G. Reynolds, The Tennessee Historical Quarterly
