Description

This eclectic volume of "her" stories boasts a taste of 30 talented writers from across America. In it, there are grandma stories, moving tributes to women who sacrificed to make the present day possible, and stories that slice us open to the cruelties women have yet to totally overcome. This anthology is an assembly of diverse cultural & ethnic voices that share a heritage and an inheritance. There are 31,000+ words spread over 230 pages that recognize our collective debt to the women whose lives find meaning through our arrival on the planet. We carry them on with us through the stories we share, here, with you. All in all, this book is a joyful potluck, a community feast, with something yummy for everyone, glistening on the silent page.

From Publishers Weekly

May 29, 1995 – Ranging from an ancient Egyptian ruler (Queen Hatshepsut) to a contemporary athlete (Billie Jean King), these highly readable thumbnail sketches cover areas from literature to politics, fashion to aviation, music to science. The 120 entries offer concise overviews of specific women's lives and accomplishments, with a thoughtful blend of professional and personal details. In addition to often-profiled figures (Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt), the collection also includes less well known but influential women like the seventh-century Chinese ruler Wu Chao and Vietnamese activist Nguyen Thi Binh. The team of nine women authors (including Ashby and Ohrn) employs a conversational tone that encourages leisurely browsing. Many selections are prefaced with a revealing excerpt from the subject's writings, and each is accompanied by a photograph or artistic likeness. Ages 10-up.
