Summary

This two-volume women's history survey of Western Civilization spans prehistory to the present. While devoting attention to women of all classes, religions, and ethnicities, the narrative examines political, economic, intellectual, and social history through the lens of gender. The text emphasizes women's agency over oppression and makes cutting-edge scholarship in women's history accessible to a wide audience. Five major themes run throughout the narrative: the relationship between key historical events and women's lives, the history of the family and sexuality, social construction of gender, cultural ideas about women versus their actual lives, and self-perception and women's place in western societies. A rich pedagogy with primary sources and biographies reinforces these themes.
