Synopsis

A collection of primary source documents for the American women's history course, "Modern American Women: A Documentary History" focuses on events and developments involving women from 1890 to the present. New material includes: documents on anti-lynching activism and Indian relocation; excerpts from "The Vagina Monologues" by Eve Ensler; and expanded chapters on 'Sexuality and the Body' and 'The State of the Movement for Women's Equality'. New part introductions provide historical context for and identify key themes that emerge from the documents in each of the book's three parts, while headnotes, suggestions for further reading and photo essays supplement this already thorough and intimate look at women's history in the 20th century.

Susan Ware specializes in twentieth-century U.S. history and the history of American Women. The author of 'Still Missing: Amelia Earhart and the Search for Modern Feminism'(1993); 'Partner and I: Molly Dewson, Feminism, and New Deal Politics'(1987); Holding Their Own: American Women in the 1930s'(1982); and 'Beyond Suffrage: Women in the New Deal'(1981), Ware taught in the history department of New York University from 1986-1995 and served as an Honorary Visiting Scholar at the Schlesinger Library of Radcliffe College from 1996-1997. She is currently an independent scholar based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
