The Amelia Bloomer Project

The Amelia Bloomer Project, a part of the Feminist Task Force of the Social Responsibilities Round Table of the American Library Association, creates an annual book list of the best feminist books for young readers, ages birth through 18. Women Making America was nominated for the list on August 31.

“A fascinating look at U.S. history, dividing it into nine chronological periods, this book combines an overview of major events and social trends with women’s lives, rights, responsibilities, and accomplishments. It includes racial and ethnic considerations as well as social movements. Each page has sidebars clearly set apart from the main text by bright colors or clear borders. If you like your history from the white male canon, this book is not for you. For the rest of us, it is a welcome view of how women were involved in creating history. Highly recommended for school, academic, and public libraries.”
