Making the Invisible Woman Visible

By Anne Firor Scott (Trustee; NHC Fellow, 1980–81)

Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1984

From the publisher’s description:

Making the Invisible Woman Visible presents the pioneering women's historian Anne Firor Scott at her best, writing on women and their social, political, and cultural roles in American history. Scott focuses especially upon the centrality of education and voluntary organizations to the advancement of women over the past century and a half, presenting the progress of woman as subject and writer of history. The result is a revealing picture of personal development, of the historian at work, and of the problems encountered by women as they move further into a field of scholarship previously dominated by men.
