Women in History on File by Group

Women's history is a standard topic in the school curriculum, yet comprehensive resources for teachers and students are scarce, particularly in the area of world history. In a single volume, this reference tool meets that need with coverage of women's contributions to world history from ancient times to the present. Designed to complement the National Standards for World History, Women in History On File is divided into seven sections, each with a chronological overview: * Prehistory * Ancient World * Medieval World * The First Global Age * Eighteenth Century * Nineteenth Century * Twentieth Century. Extensive coverage of diverse aspects of women's history, including their status in society, daily life, and work is supplemented with biographical sketches of important women arranged by geographical area. Appendixes feature: * Chronologies of women's history * Voting rights, female heads of states * The incidence of death in childbirth * Information about marriages * Internet resources.
