Presents profiles of influential twentieth-century women, including Gertrude Stein, Alice Walker, Billie Holiday, Barbara Jordan, and Gloria Steinem

Book News
Personality profiles of influential 20th-century women including writers such as Gertrude Stein, Zora Neale Hurston, and Alice Walker; musicians such as Billie Holiday, Barbara Streisand, and Madonna; political figures such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Barbara Jordan; prominent feminists such as Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem; as well as athletes, journalists, activists, dancers and actresses. The entries are not what one would call in-depth, nor are they particularly coherently organized, though the layout and illustrations make for an attractive presentation. The end result is more of a feel-good, coffee-table book than a substantive reference. 10X11.5". Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
