Part of McGraw-Hill'sExplorations in World Historyseries, this brief and accessible volume examines the evolving roles of women in modern history, how major world historical processes changed women's lives, and how women in turn influenced history. Within the distinct time period covered in each of chapters, the authors explores a variety of issues impacting the everyday lives of ordinary women, including life-cycle, sexuality, education, class, politics, and economics. The book's brevity makes it an excellent companion text for students in world history, women's history, introductory sociology and anthropology courses, and women's studies courses.
