This research tool provides information about the accomplishments of women often ignored in history. Encompassing the period 1600-1900, it introduces the reader to more than 700 lesser-known women in numerous fields from throughout the world. Each entry includes basic biographical data as well as details of unusual circumstances and obstacles that were overcome. Women previously known only as wife, mother, or sister - and often dismissed as being unfeminine, deviant, or even dangerous - are given credit for achievements that have gone unrecognized for centuries. Key features of the dictionary include: an easy-to-use chronological format; sources for further reference following each entry; and three indexes, by name, country of origin, and field. Aimed at the student, the scholar and the librarian, this volume provides both a quick reference for specific information and a guide for further research.
