Title: Women's History Month 2013
Post by: Metro on March 02, 2013, 03:28:58 pm

What's the best work of women's history you've read?

For me, it is probably Labor of Love, Labor of Sorrow by Jacqueline Jones.

There's a great recent list on Twitter under today's #saturdayschool .

Love to hear more resources.

TWENTIENTH CENTURY WOMEN OF ACHIEVEMENT by Samuel Kostman

A book best used as a point of reference than anything. 
A short biography of 10 women (Mary Baker Eddy, Mary McCleod Bethume, Margaret Sanger, Pearl S. Buck, Marie Curie, Golda Meir, Margaret Mead, Marian Anderson, Gloria Steinem and Billie Jean King) during the time of the Women's Liberation movement who made a name for themselves and what they stood for.

Danielle's new work on Rosa Parks follows this groundbreaking history.
