Women in World History: A Biographical Encyclopedia, Volume 1
Anne Commire, Deborah Klezmer
Yorkin Publications, 1999 - Social Science - 666 pages
"Locating information on women is difficult and the editors have done a fine job assembling and publishing information extant on individual women from many nations both living and dead. Because in some cases only birth, marriage, children, and death dates are known, the 10,000 articles vary in length according to the subject. If you haven't been able to answer reference questions on women, you need this set."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001.
