Women's History For Beginners SC (2012) comic books
1st printing. Written by Bonnie J. Morris, Ph.D. Art by Phill Evans. Womens History For Beginners offers a lively, revealing, and provocative overview of this important (and controversial) academic field. Who are the great women of history, and why dont we know more about them? You dont need to be a scholar to notice that mens history dominates everything we learn in school; yet a quick tour of the past reveals dynamic female role models at every turn. This is more than an introduction to womens roles and contributions across time. It also examines the ways that women in all societies have been ruled by men, according to law and custom. Womens History For Beginners opens with a critical investigation of why so few of us are exposed to womens history in our years of schooling—and why educators and political groups remain leery of bringing fair, accurate womens history content into the classroom even now. It concludes with the reminder that women, too, are divided by race and class and nationality; that there is no one-size-fits-all womens history but many different versions, each worthy of investigation and understanding. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 200 pages, B&W. Cover price $16.99.
