✏Revolutionary Mothers Book Summary : The American Revolution was a home-front war that brought scarcity, bloodshed, and danger into the life of every American. In this groundbreaking history, Carol Berkin shows us how women played a vital role throughout the conflict. The women of the Revolution were most active at home, organizing boycotts of British goods, raising funds for the fledgling nation, and managing the family business while struggling to maintain a modicum of normalcy as husbands, brothers and fathers died. Yet Berkin also reveals that it was not just the men who fought on the front lines, as in the story of Margaret Corbin, who was crippled for life when she took her husband’s place beside a cannon at Fort Monmouth. This incisive and comprehensive history illuminates a fascinating and unknown side of the struggle for American independence.

✏Woman to Woman Book Summary : In recent years, scholars have started to look beyond contemptuous representations of chaotic female communities and are beginning to reveal a neglected history of women's cooperative activity. Most work on female collaboration has been in the literary sphere, where the two main topics of relevance are the society of bluestockings and the utopian literary visions of female societies in the eighteenth-century novel. Scholars have highlighted the benefits of female co-operation, but repressive elements have been just as visible. Woman to Woman provides a multi-disciplinary approach to this underexplored theme in order to demonstrate the rich diversity and productivity of female relationships. This collection provides the basis for a more thorough exploration of the benign and beneficial qualities of female communities. Fresh ideas on the study of women's history have revealed that there is still much to be learned about female sociability in all its forms. The most important factor to consider is the vast range of eighteenth-century evidence from public and private sources. Unfortunately, demands of relevance can force investigators to omit some resources from their publications, while devoting close attention to others. Another issue that affects this enterprise is the wide variation in the amount of publicity generated by different forms of female association, and in the care with which they were recorded. These essays draw together the best of current scholarship to show how collaboration enabled eighteenth-century women to intervene in military and political affairs, achieve literary success, experience religious fulfillment, and engage in philanthropic projects. Part I focuses on blood ties, analyzing a range of family relationships; Part II explores female sociability, including various forms of negotiation and co-operation between female friends and companions; Part III provides fascinating new readings of historic figures and events, highlighting the collaborative activity of extraordinary, adventurous women who knowingly risked their lives in order to achieve their goals, including the contemporary exploits of Emma Hamilton and the founding mothers of New France in Canada, and Boadicea's inspiring historical example. This collection honors the late Mary Waldron, whose generous encouragement of other specialists in feminist studies in the long eighteenth century is described in Isobel Grundy's Preface. The volume will interest professional academics, as well as postgraduate and under-graduate students in gender studies and eighteenth-century studies programs.

✏Revolutionizing Motherhood Book Summary : Revolutionizing Motherhood examines one of the most astonishing human rights movements of recent years. During the Argentine junta's Dirty War against subversives, as tens of thousands were abducted, tortured, and disappeared, a group of women forged the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo and changed Argentine politics forever. The Mothers began in the 1970s as an informal group of working-class housewives making the rounds of prisons and military barracks in search of their disappeared children. As they realized that both state and church officials were conspiring to withhold information, they started to protest, claiming the administrative center of Argentina the Plaza de Mayo for their center stage. In this volume, Marguerite G. Bouvard traces the history of the Mothers and examines how they have transformed maternity from a passive, domestic role to one of public strength. Bouvard also gives a detailed history of contemporary Argentina, including the military's debacle in the Falklands, the fall of the junta, and the efforts of subsequent governments to reach an accord with the Mothers. Finally, she examines their current agenda and their continuing struggle to bring the murderers of their children to justice.
