Margie Wolfe has worked in feminist book publishing for almost forty years. She has co-edited several book collections including Still Ain't Satisfied: Canadian Feminism Today, No Safe Place: Violence Against Women and Children, Found Treasures: Stories by Yiddish Women Writers, and From Memory to Transformation: Jewish Women’s Voices.

      Women's History Month might be winding down, but Bustle's love for women in literature never does. That's why I've got this list of historical fiction books about incredible ed by real.   Fascinating Womanhood would become the anti-feminist manifesto that galvanized a decades-long “family values” movement for conservative women. A few years earlier, Andelin, a Central California housewife, had been experiencing a malaise common to year marriages. Her husband didn’t seem interested in her anymore.

      To teach American women's history through primary source documents, or to supplement a narrative history or simply to add women's history to a standard American history course, this collection is an excellent choice. Individuals looking to hear the voices of women in different periods will also find this book interesting and valuable.   There are few women as fascinating to me as Audrey Hepburn. This book is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her most well-known movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and an examination of how the Audrey we all think we know is far from the Audrey that existed in real life.
