Hi Could anyone recommend a good book about the history of women, or an account of the role of women throughout history, for a total beginner in women's studies. In fact, I would appreciate any recommendation of any good book or basic bibliography on women's studies. Thank you.
I have just finished reading Women, family and society in Medieval Europe, Historical Essays by David Helihy. It's obviously not a complete history of women but it covers the 10th-15th century in europe and is very interesting.
