Her Story: A Timeline of the Women Who Changed America


Her Story is a vivid documentation of the breadth and diversity of American women’s achievements throughout U.S. history.  This one-of-a-kind, illustrated timeline highlights the awesome, varied, and often unrecognized contributions of American women since the 1500s.  The timeline includes snapshots of events and organizations that have shaped women’s experiences and women’s history and, thereby, the culture and history of America.  The familiar and unfamiliar stories that unfold here—from Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, to chemist Stephanie Kwolek’s invention of Kevlar, the synthetic fiber used to make bulletproof vests—make Her Story a captivating look at champions that will resonate with women and men alike.  Contains 187 of the Hall’s 226 Inductees!  Written by Charlotte S. Waisman, Ph.D. and Jill S. Tietjen, P.E.; forward by Madeleine Albright.  Softcover; full-color; 260 pages.
