Rad American Women A-Z by Kate Schatz
26 American women from the 18th through 21st centuries, who have made-or are still making–history as artists, writers, teachers, lawyers, or athletes, are profiled in this book. The women come from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds and many had to overcome extreme hardships. One woman represents each alphabetical letter beginning with Angela Davis, an activist, teacher, and writer, and concludes with Zora Neale Hurston, an anthropologist and writer.
