Summary

This highly respected collection of original articles on women offers the most complete coverage of European women's history available from the earliest civilization in the Nile River Valley to the 1990s, with significant coverage of non-European contacts. Thematic emphases include the contacts between European women and those outside European frontiers; sexuality and its importance for the construction of gender over the centuries; coverage of women from all time periods and sociocultural backgrounds; the role of women in the great events and movements in European history and the impact of such events on them; and the interplay of gender and women's lives over the centuries.

  • 20th-century women's history includes coverage of immigration and Eastern Europe.
  • Increased emphasis is given to differences in age, class, race, region, and ethnicity and the effects these differences had on women's experiences. The third edition provides even more coverage of sexuality.
  • New topics include women in Eastern Europe, immigration and migration in Europe today, women and the Reformation, and women in the culture of the Enlightenment.
