"If a Martian were to land beside an earthly library and begin browsing through works on American history, the visitor might conclude that our past was a series of battles, treaties, migrations, and political contests. At least until recently, history has been seen as overwhelmingly a male world in which the role of women was virtually incidental. Consider Virginia women. It seems incredible that half the Old Dominion's population - with the longest history of any English-speaking women in any of the United States - has never had its complex and exciting story set down in reasonable completeness. But now Virginia's women have their story: Idols, Victims, Pioneers. The title, as provocative as the lives of the women who fill its pages, stems from a line written in 1925 by Dr. Francis Pendleton Gaines, the late president of Washington and Lee University. Of the antebellum Southern woman, Gaines said she was both the idol of masculine society and its pathetic victim. Yet there have always been Virginia women who were not content to be either idols or victims, but chose instead to be pioneers."--Book Flap
