This anthology brings together carefully selected, quality articles in U.S. Women's History–organized around an interest in issues of gender and power in American society. Twenty-seven individual essays provide readers with a unifying theme, and a greater understanding of history and continuing changes in gender relations. The chosen works discuss the experience of white women in seventeenth-century Maryland, the beginnings of the Afro-American family in Maryland, religious women in revolutionary New England, the sexual division of labor and the artisan tradition in early industrial capitalism, female slaves, women's rights within the anti-slavery movement, sex roles and social stress in Jacksonian America, women and Indians on the frontier, Chinese immigrant women in nineteenth-century California, and much more.
