Reading Together: About Women in America
Drawing primary sources and first hand accounts, Gail Collins and Cokie Roberts shine the light on various women and moments that played significant roles in the history of the United States.
America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines
In this sweeping cultural history, Gail Collins explores the transformations, victories, and tragedies of women in America over the past 300 years. As she traces the role of females from their arrival on the Mayflower through the 19th century to the feminist movement of the 1970s and today, she demonstrates a boomerang pattern of participation and retreat.
