ÒI am very impressed by Frances Smith FosterÕs Written by Herself, a work of thorough scholarship, judicious criticism, and original insights. . . . This book will confirm her leadership among those working in this ever-expanding field.Ó ÑWilliam L. Andrews Written by Herself is the first comprehensive cultural history of literature by African American women prior to the twentieth century. Beginning with the earliest extant writings, Frances Smith Foster frames her textual analyses within the writersÕ social and literary contexts. These works stem from literary traditions and cultural interventions received, invented, or modified by writers who defied the accepted literary prerogatives of their race, gender, and class. Their literature was argument, designed to correct or to instruct an audience often ignorant about or even hostile to Black women. Adapting existing genres and literary techniques, these authors developed a form of literary signification and saw themselves as part of a continuing literary tradition. Foster begins with the oral histories of Alice, a slave born in Philadelphia in 1686. She continues with political activists Maria W. Stewart and Anna Julia Cooper, precursors of the African American womenÕs literary tradition that included Lucy Terry Price, Phyllis Wheatley, Jarena Lee, Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Keckley, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, and Octavia Victoria Rogers Albert.

Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. Every fall, her father would pack the family into the car and they would drive across the country, in search of their next adventure. The seeds were planted: Steinem would spend much of her life on the road, as a journalist, organizer, activist, and speaker. In vivid stories that span an entire career, Steinem writes about her time on the campaign trail, from Bobby Kennedy to Hillary Clinton; her early exposure to social activism in India; organizing ground-up movements in America; the taxi drivers who were "vectors of modern myths" and the airline stewardesses who embraced feminism; and the infinite contrasts, the "surrealism in everyday life" that Steinem encountered as she travelled back and forth across the country. With the unique perspective of one of the greatest feminist icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, here is an inspiring, profound, enlightening memoir of one woman's life-long journey.

Welcome to the childhood of Catherine McClure Gildiner. It is the mid-1950s in Lewiston, New York, a sleepy town near Niagara Falls. Divorce is unheard of, mothers wear high heels to the beauty salon, and television has only just arrived. At the tender age of four, Cathy accompanies Roy, the deliveryman at her father's pharmacy, on his routes. She shares some of their memorable deliveries-sleeping pills to Marilyn Monroe (in town filming Niagara), sedatives to Mad Bear, a violent Tuscarora chief, and fungus cream to Warty, the gentle operator of the town dump. As she reaches her teenage years, Cathy's irrepressible spirit spurs her from dangerous sled rides that take her "too close to the Falls" to tipsy dances with the town priest.
