America's Women tells the story of more than four centuries of history. It features a stunning array of personalities, from the women peering worriedly over the side of the Mayflower to feminists having a grand old time protesting beauty pageants and bridal fairs. Courageous, silly, funny, and heartbreaking, these women shaped the nation and our vision of what it means to be female in America.

Told chronologically through the compelling stories of individual lives that, linked together, provide a complete picture of the American woman's experience, America's Women is both a great read and a landmark work of history.

    " I do not usually like to read books which are not novels, but I really enjoyed this book. "

    " This was fantastic. Collins covers famous women and ordinary women. She describes all of the amazing accomplishments that American women have made, but she also takes special care to describe what an average day would be like for a woman of each time. Her writing style is very engaging and she made this history into a page-turner. I highly recommend this book and I may end up buying it as a gift for various family and friends. "
