Description : "Locating information on women is difficult and the editors have done a fine job assembling and publishing information extant on individual women from many nations both living and dead. Because in some cases only birth, marriage, children, and death dates are known, the 10,000 articles vary in length according to the subject. If you haven't been able to answer reference questions on women, you need this set."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001.

Description : Excerpt from Notable Women in History: The Lives of Women Who in All Ages, All Lands, and in All Womanly Occupations Have Won Fame and Put Their Imprint on the World's History Lord Raglan or Florence Nightingale did the more to reanimate the drooping spirits of the English soldiers in the Crimea. And as a dashing leader, a beaux sabreur, Sheridan in no degree surpassed Joan of Arc. Her white armor and flowing tresses rallied her waver ing troops as effectively as did that terrible oath which Little Phil. Is practically reputed to have ripped out on the twenty - mile ride to Winchester. These are extreme instances of course - extreme as to men as well as to women. But I think no one can read these sketches of seventy Women of History - it would not have been hard to collect three times as many - without appreciating some of the heights to which the feminine mind is capable of rising and the infinite variety of its flights. Let it be remembered that in all times and amidst all peoples of which we have knowledge the woman has been held the weaker vessel and the study of man has been to keep her weak. Not necessarily physically weak by any means. Wit ness the lordly husband of the tropics lolling at ease while his various wives till the fields. But weak in all that makes for personal initiative and independence. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

A groundbreaking blend of history, feminism, and the mystical arts, Our Tarot is a unique, specially designed tarot deck with cards that feature an intricate collage portrait of dozens of powerful women who have helped shape history. Each card conveys the energy, messages, and symbolism its figure brings to the deck. The set includes a full-color guidebook that offers a concise history of the tarot deck, an explanation of the deck and the significance of the cards, and tips on interpreting each, with instructive sample spreads to guide you. It explains the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana and their chronology, offers biographies that link each woman's life story, accomplishments, and traits with the card she represents, and explains the card's relevance in a reading.

These diverse women come from all eras in history, from 1300 BCE to the late twentieth century, and represent many ethnicities, creeds, socioeconomic classes, sexualities, ages, and abilities.

Description : This reference book, containing the biographies of more than 1,100 notable British women from Boudicca to Barbara Castle, is an absorbing record of female achievement spanning some 2,000 years of British life. Most of the lives included are those of women whose work took them in some way before the public and who therefore played a direct and important role in broadening the horizons of women. Also included are women who influenced events in a more indirect way: the wives of kings and politicians, mistresses, ladies in waiting and society hostesses. Originally published as The Europa Biographical Dictionary of British Women, this newly re-worked edition includes key figures who have died in the last 20 years, such as The Queen Mother, Baroness Ryder of Warsaw, Elizabeth Jennings and Christina Foyle.

Description : Women in World History brings together the most recent scholarship in women's and world history in a single volume covering the period from 1450 to the present, enabling readers to understand women's relationship to world developments over the past five hundred years. Women have served the world as unfree people, often forced to migrate as slaves, trafficked sex workers, and indentured laborers working off debts. Diseases have migrated through women's bodies and women themselves have deliberately spread religious belief and fervor as well as ideas. They have been global authors, soldiers, and astronauts encircling the globe and moving far beyond it. They have written classics in political and social thought and crafted literary and artistic works alongside others who were revolutionaries and reform-minded activists. Historical scholarship has shown that there is virtually no part of the world where women's presence is not manifest, whether in archives, oral testimonials, personal papers, the material record, evidence of disease and famine, myth and religious teachings, and myriad other forms of documentation. As these studies mount, the idea of surveying women's past on a global basis becomes daunting. This book aims to redress this situation and offer a synthetic world history of women in modern times.

Description : The tried and tested 'On This Day in History' format has elevated the stories of many people and their impact on the wider world. However, of those considered noteworthy by the Establishment, just a fraction are women. But this is not the whole story - not by half. Our past is full of influential women, many of whom have been unfairly confined to the margins of history. Politicians, troublemakers, explorers, artists, writers, scientists and even the odd murderer; these women have shaped society around the globe. From Beyoncé to Doria Shafik, Queen Elizabeth I to Lillian Bilocca, On This Day She sets out to redress this imbalance and give voice to both those already deemed female icons, alongside others whom the history books have failed to include: the good, the bad and everything in between - this is a record of human existence at its most authentic.

Description : The history of women interpreters of the Bible is a neglected area of study. Marion Taylor presents a one-volume reference tool that introduces readers to a wide array of women interpreters of the Bible from the entire history of Christianity. Her research has implications for understanding biblical interpretation--especially the history of interpretation--and influencing contemporary study of women and the Bible. Contributions by 130 top scholars introduce foremothers of the faith who address issues of interpretation that continue to be relevant to faith communities today, such as women's roles in the church and synagogue and the idea of religious feminism. Women's interpretations also raise awareness about differences in the ways women and men may read the Scriptures in light of differences in their life experiences. This handbook will prove useful to ministers as well as to students of the Bible, who will be inspired, provoked, and challenged by the women introduced here. The volume will also provide a foundation for further detailed research and analysis. Interpreters include Elizabeth Rice Achtemeier, Saint Birgitta of Sweden, Catherine Mumford Booth, Anne Bradstreet, Catherine of Siena, Clare of Assisi, Egeria, Elizabeth I, Hildegard, Julian of Norwich, Thérèse of Lisieux, Marcella, Henrietta C. Mears, Florence Nightingale, Phoebe Palmer, Faltonia Betitia Proba, Pandita Ramabai, Christina Georgina Rossetti, Dorothy Leigh Sayers, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, St. Teresa of Avila, Sojourner Truth, and Susanna Wesley.
