Women Short-Changed by History


This fascinating text brings to light the contributions of five women seldom, if ever, mentioned as more than passing characters in the rich pageant of American history. These remarkable ladies, ignored, belittled, and scorned in their own lifetimes, are accorded here the attention worthy of their struggle for the recognition of women operating outside of the societally imposed limitations of gender. These women are Pocahontas, Lucy Terry Prince, Mary Edwards Walker, Sarah Josepha Hale, and Victoria Claflin Woodhull.
