Women's History

I am a book buyer for the University of Denver Bookstore and was wondering if you would please forward a list of books that would be a positive representation for Women's History Month. I am looking for classics as well as new literature both fiction and nonfiction. Any titles that you could forward would be of assistance. - Heidi

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and for ensuring that you have an inclusive and well-informed women's history month. A few immediate ideas are:

"The Reader's Companion to U.S. Women's History" edited by Wilma Mankiller, Gwendolyn Mink, Marysa Navarro, Barbara Smith and Gloria Steinem. (Houghton Mifflin, Boston, MA) It's a must have for women's history month--and for every book shelf--especially those of women's studies departments.

  • "A Century of Women: The History of Women in Britian and the U.S." by Sheila Rowbotham.
  • "The American Women's Almanac" by Louise Berkinow (Berkley Press)
  • "Feminism in Our Time" and
  • "Feminism the Essential Writings"--both by Miriam Schneir.
  • Any collection edited by Jo Freeman--"Woman: A Feminist Perspective."
These are more or less overviews. I can send more extensive lists via the mail (too much to send via email) if you send me your mailing address and/or fax. Good luck with your planning.
