A to Z of Women in World History (A to Z of Women)


This single-volume encyclopedia of 260 important women throughout history - and from all parts of the world - groups lively, engrossing biographies, according to their subjects' major claims to fame. Chapters on women adventurers and athletes (Mata Hari, Babe Didrikson), religious figures (Hildegard von Bingen, Mirabai), scientists (Agnodike, Rosalind Franklin), artists (Artemisia Gentileschi, Maya Lin), journalists (Nellie Bly, Elizabeth Mallet), fashion figures (Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Madame de Pompadour), and more focus readers' attention on the women themselves and their accomplishments. The entries range deep into their subjects' lives, linking their formative experiences with their later achievements. The biographies' depth and detail set the book apart from its competitors.
