Publisher's Summary

Histories of the United States often overlook the women who shaped the nation. Museums, textbooks, historical sites, and even documentaries omit essential parts of the whole because they leave out her story. Join Allison K. Lange, historian and professor, as she guides you through the fascinating lives of 12 early Americans, all of them women. With a deft talent for bringing history to life, follow Allison as she explores the complex and often controversial lives of these American women who shaped the United States as we know it today.

Although each woman featured in 12 Women Who Shaped America: 1619 to 1920 has her unique story, the women are united by their belief in the value of women and the importance of public image. Through the medium of portraiture, you will get to see each woman as she wanted you to see her, while gaining invaluable context and historical perspective. Uncover how these extraordinary individuals sought to secure new rights and opportunities for women across the social and political spectrum.

The stories and images featured in 12 Women Who Shaped America: 1619 to 1920 give us unprecedented insights into the lives and careers of the women who shaped America well into the 20th century. Get an invaluable glimpse into the critical intersection of photography, politics, and the fight for gender and racial equality, which will give you a new and broader understanding of influential women in early American history.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Professor is knowledgeable

But her presentation style and voice would have put me to sleep if I was in school. Glad I listened while doing things.
