Women in World History: A Biographical Encyclopedia
By Anne Commire, editor
The work includes women of historical interest from all walks of life and is truly international in scope. Three hundred contributors from 20 nations participated. Among those researched are wives, daughters, mothers, and other women who were not documented in traditional, male-oriented sources, especially history books. Originally, only women deceased before 1926 were to be included, but the scope was later altered to include women of the 1960s feminist era and those "whose places in history are secure." A 16-volume set.
