Holding Their Own: American Women in the 1930s
"Holding Their Own provides a lively overview of the often unrecognized contributions and experiences of American women during the Depression. Harvard historian Susan Ware analyzes the survival of feminism, the impact of popular culture, and the changing role of women at home and at work, and considers the achievements of such extraordinary women as Amelia Earhart, Lillian Hellman, Clare Boothe and Emma Goldman in the context of their time."--Book cover.
