Banner (U. of Southern California) examines the history of women in the U.S. from 1890 to the present. Organized chronologically into four eras, the accessibly written text covers groups such as female reformers, working-class women, immigrant and ethnic women, farm women, women of color, and lesbians. A central theme of the book is the continuing struggle by women of all social classes and ethnicities to achieve rights for women. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
