Bibliography of Women: A Survey of Women Past and Present as Reflected by the Holdings of the United States Military Academy Library.
Earl, Martha M., Comp.
The publication of this bibliography on "Women" is an appropriate event in that it closely follows the passage of the law which for the first time permits women to enter the United States Military Academy in its 173 year history. Over 500 titles are presently extant in the USMA Library collection on the subject of women, representing woman's role in the past and present. Women are depicted in all walks of life including the military. The importance of women in different countries and diverse cultures is discussed throughout the literature and the arts. Emancipation, suffrage, physical and psychological factors pertaining to women are all reflected in the writing presented in this bibliography. Finally the history of the legal and political rights of women is covered in full. Included in the listing are books by and about Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Jane Addams, Julia Ward Howe, Simone de Beauvior, Margaret Mead, Germaine Greer and Betty Friedan. (Author)
