The 100 Most Influential Women of All Time: A Ranking Past and Present

Front Cover
Carol Publishing Group, 1996 - Biography & Autobiography - 374 pages
A ranking of the most influential women in recorded time biographies Sappho, the Virgin Mary, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Lucille Ball. Readers may argue the listing, but the concise and insightful entries are sacrosanct. Felder compiled her compendium aided by women's studies professors and chairs from leading US universities. The range is impressive from the instantly recognizable to the virtually unknown in all fields of social reform, politics, literature, and entertainment. One is compelled to ask why some of these women remain obscure, and so the volume stands as an interesting platform for discussion. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
