BeschreibungAt the beginning of the 20th century it was still necessary for women to ask lawmakers, 'Are women persons?' The rights and treatment of women in their homes, workplaces, and government were issues that men often preferred to ignore. But women refused to remain silent. This volume looks at women who are shapers of history, as well as its victims.
