This volume of fourteen essays fills a real need, helping to answer questions about women in Maine history. The essays offer insight into a rich variety of Maine women, some famous and some ordinary, some intent on changing their lives and their society and others struggling to survive. Taken together, their stories enrich our understanding of Maine, of women, and of history. Edited by Marli F. Weiner. Contains an essay from Maine Historical Society's own Candace Kanes.
