Western history is thoroughly covered and supplemented by information on Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Africa. From Cro-Magnon childbirth and ancient Egyptian cosmetics to Janet Reno and the Tailhook scandal, Chronology of Women's History is invaluable for identifying the accomplishments and historical circumstances of women in any given historical period. Entries are arranged by year or group of years in a format of ten subject categories. Here the reader will find information concerning women's legal rights, life expectancy, medical care, and daily tasks, as well as the achievements of women in these categories: general status and daily life; government, military, and the law; literature and the visual arts; performing arts and entertainment; athletics and exploration; activism; business and industry; science and medicine; education and scholarship; and religion. Brief entries summarize the most important or characteristic events of each period, while explanatory essays illuminate broad trends and outstanding aspects of women's lives in a variety of cultures."--Back cover
