Editorial Reviews

Review

"In a series highlighting women's roles in major areas of the world, Wayne traces the 19th century in the US as one of great progress for women. Still, as the timeline shows, it wasn't until 1920 that the Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote. The many images include an illustration from an antislavery book; photographs of Little Women author Louisa May Alcott, early feminist theorist Margaret Fuller, and Indian reformer Sarah Winnemucca; and a Mary Cassatt painting for the Woman's Building at the 1983 World's Columbian Exposition. Chapters include suggested reading."

"[W]ayne….[s]ucceeds admirably in fulfilling the series' purpose. This thematic overview of women's history in nineteenth-century America is an engaging, quick-moving read….It does not read like a textbook, but rather as a user-friendly work of synthetic scholarship which provides both a structured overview and a current and top-notch set of reading lists for students interested in women's history….[b]y integrating the true variety of American women's experiences in her narrative, Wayne captures the period in a way monographs often cannot….[a]n excellent overview of women's history for high-school students, complete and up-to-date with sophisticated, clear writing that does not condescend or oversimplify….engaging, and well-executed overview in a slim volume. It is an excellent resource for libraries and classrooms."
