From Eve to Dawn, A History of Women in the World: Revolutions and Struggles for Justice in the 20th Century
In the 20th century, women became a force for change, in part through suffrage, and in part through mass organizing. This final volume offers a vibrant history of multiple political revolutions as well as the century's horrors—including genocides and the atom bomb. It ends with a thoughtful investigation into the various indigenous feminist movements throughout the world and asks what these peaceful revolutions might augur for the future. Eschewing easy answers, French suggests that the defining moral moments of the 21st century should and will build from a global human rights agenda.
