Summary

From the indigeous women of the sixteenth-century wilderness to the dual-layer career women and mothers of contemporary times, this book brings American womanhood to center stage. In exploring the lives of pioneers and slaves, immigrant and factory workers, executives and homemakers, Evans sheds light on their contributions to the shaping of the nation and transforms our notions about political participation and active citizenship.
