More Info

This major new dictionary surveys the achievements and influence of women throughout the world and across recorded human history. Over 3,000 biographical profiles ranging from Isabel Allende to Benazir Bhutto to the Queen of Sheba are presented in an easily referenced A-Z format. A truly international reference, the Larousse Dictionary of Women brings together women from such far-flung countries as Uruguay, Botswana, Iran, and China with women of the western world. Comprehensive in its coverage, over 80 different areas of interest -- from abolitionist to artist, feminist to faith-healer, gospel-singer to geneticist, and from saint to saxophonist -- are included. Additional reference resources that will prove indispensable to students, educators, and general readers include a fully integrated chronology of womens' achievements, with legal landmarks, Olympic medalists, Nobel, Pulitzer prize, and Academy Award winners, and quotations by and about women. This versatile volume reflects not only the illustrious legacy of the world's more famous women but also highlights hundreds of noteworthy women whose seldom documented, but nonetheless important work, deserves to be brought to attention.
