ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
 This pathbreaking anthology is an illuminating look at the lives of ten influential twentieth-century American women and at the challenges experienced by the women who have written about them. Exploring the frequently complicated dialogue between writer and subject, the contributors uncover tools appropriate to writing women's biography and reveal, in often riveting accounts, how feminist scholarship led them to approach women's lives in unconventional ways.  
 
"This wonderful collection demonstrates the significance of women's biography as a central part of feminist scholarship. The feminist biographer inserts a second life into a biography, her own, giving us yet another layer of depth and insight." - Ann J. Lane, author of To "Herland" and Beyond: The Life and Work of Charlotte Perkins Gilman
