About the Author

Marilyn French (1929-2009) was born in New York. She received her PhD from Harvard and taught English at Hofstra, Harvard, and Holy Cross College. She is best known for her novels, The Women's Room and In the Name of Friendship, and her non-fiction works, including Beyond Power, The War against Women and her memoir, A Season in Hell.

Margaret Atwood's most popular works include The Handmaid's Tale (1983) and The Blind Assassin (2000). She was born in Ottawa, Ontario in 1939, and received her undergraduate degree from Victoria University, along with a master's degree from Radcliffe College.


"[French's] coverage is encyclopedic, but her prose is impressively accessible, creating a rare find: a page-turning, can't-put-it-down history text. . . . This is not a simple repackaging of history for women. French instead gives life to a new way of looking at the world as it exists for women. Her history is sure to inspire the burgeoning feminist in every woman and man. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and essential for universities with women's studies programs."
--Library Journal, starred review

"Offers fascinating insight and detail."
--Publishers Weekly

"[Marilyn French] still knows how to keep the pages turning."
--Time Out New York

"Leaves the reader breathless. This richly researched volume paints memorable images and with passion and vision, shows us how a century that began with men claiming women as their property ended with women's demands for an end to their subjugation."
--Meg McGavran Murray, author of Margaret Fuller, Wandering Pilgrim
