Summary
The unique and independent American woman: adventurer... pioneer... poet... mother... educator... artist... freedom fighter. 'A history of women's achievement in America' examines the 400-year history of American women's inspiring accomplishments and victories. Without the American woman's pioneering fortitude, the early colonies at Jamestown and Plymouth Plantation, would not have survived. Since then, millions of America's pioneering women have continued to push the frontier ever forward. Destined to play an essential role in the shaping of the USA, the American woman forged an identity unlike any before her. That identity found a voice as she contributed to America's wealth of talent in the arts and sciences. American women led the fight to end slavery, limit corporate power and provide education for all, as well as protect the poor, disenfranchised and mentally unstable. All the while, these unique American women fought tirelessly for their own equal rights in education, employment and politics including their right to vote"--Container cover insert
