Women s America

The third edition of this widely-acclaimed anthology integrates the best of recent scholarship in women's history with American history as a whole. A new introductory essay explains the ways in which the historical experiences of men and women in the United States have diverged, and traces the way in which gender has been socially constructed. Some seventy-five essays and documents--ranging from a letter written by a slave woman to an analysis of contemporary feminism--guide the reader to an understanding of the interaction of race, class, and gender throughout American history. With its wealth of primary and secondary source material, a revised appendix of essential legal documents, concise headnotes, and clear, chronological organization, the third edition of Women's America shows with new force and vigor why gender has become a powerful analytical device for those seeking to understand the history of the United States.

More than a generation after the rise of women's history alongside the feminist movement, it is still difficult, observes Catherine Brekus, to locate women in histories of American religion. Mary Dyer, a Quaker who was hanged for heresy; Lizzie Robinson, a former slave and laundress who sold Bibles door to door; Sally Priesand, a Reform rabbi; Estela Ruiz, who saw a vision of the Virgin Mary--how do these women's stories change our understanding of American religious history and American women's

In the years following World War I, women activists in the United States and Europe saw themselves as leaders of a globalizing movement to promote women's rights and international peace. In hopes of advancing alliances, U.S. internationalists such as Jane Addams, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Doris Stevens reached across the border to their colleagues in Mexico, including educator Margarita Robles de Mendoza and feminist Hermila Galindo. They established new organizations, sponsored conferences, and rallied for peaceful relations between the
