The Quotable Woman Speaks: DVD




Where are the women? That is the question I often asked myself when studying history in school. Most of the English-speaking world learned about history from a Euro-centric point of view. Not only does that viewpoint exclude the perspectives of other nations, but it also, to a great degree, excludes women. A glance at a list of history textbooks reveals the vast majority are written by men. And most of the documentation of world history focuses on men, their deeds, and misdeeds. The uncountable numbers of brave, intelligent, and gifted women who have left their mark on the world are often relegated to a footnote if mentioned at all. In my book, The Quotable Woman, The First 5,000 Years, there are more than 5,000 such women. Here you are about to meet six of them. Enjoy! – Elaine Partnow
