Women : our story / by Roberts, Rebecca Boggs,writer of foreword.; DK Publishing, Inc.,editor.;
The birth of the patriarchy : up to 600ce -- Purity, piety, and property : 600-1500 -- From empire to enlightenment : 1500-1800 -- Knowledge and power : 1800-1914 -- The age of empowerment : 1914-1960 -- Smashing the glass ceiling : 1960 to present day.Packed full of evocative images, this gloriously illustrated book reveals the key events in women's history--from early matriarchal societies through women's suffrage, the Suffragette movement, 20th-century feminism, and gender politics, to recent movements such as #MeToo and International Women's Day--and the key role women have had in shaping our past. Learn about the everyday lives of women through the ages as well as the big names of women's history--powerful, inspirational, and trailblazing women such as Cleopatra, Florence Nightingale, Emmeline Pankhurst, Eva Peron, and Rosa Parks--and discover the unsung contributions of lesser-known women who have changed the world, and the "forgotten" events of women's history. Placing women firmly center stage, Women: Our Story shows women where they came from, and in celebrating the achievements of women of the past, offers positive role models for women of today.
