    About The Book

    Where do you go to learn about Madonna or foot binding?  What about hot pants, the Queen of Sheba, Clara Barton or the Bread and Roses Strike of 1912? 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About Women’s History is a lively, approachable introduction to these and 995 other topics that appear on the dazzling canvas of women’s history.

    In clear and engaging prose, Constance Jones gives readers an entertaining and panoramic view of the female half of history.  She covers the people that we all ought to know, like Queen Elizabeth I, Helen Keller, and Marie Curie, as well as other leading female politicians, artists, athletes, physicians, teachers, soldiers, criminals, spiritual leaders, entertainers, poets, inventors, lovers, and thrill seekers of every sort.  In addition to presenting a well-rounded survey of the achievements of women, she offers a healthy smattering of amusing, startling, and scandalous tidbits — the naughty stuff that makes history so fun.

    1001 Things Everyone Should Know About Women’s History puts history at your fingertips — in pithy, easily read entries, lavishly illustrated with nearly one hundred photographs.  Like all the books in the 1001 Things series, it can be read from beginning to end or opened at random and browsed with pleasure.  This is history the way it should be taught: concise, fun, and accessible.
