Although writing was long considered suitable only for men, there were some brave and clever women who defied the limitations cast upon their gender. Divided by chronological eras, this fascinating collection of biographies will enlighten readers about the women who have crafted the written word to record their surroundings, their imaginations, and their experiences. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Defying Convention: Women Who Changed the Rules series offers informative collective biographies within specific fields. Arranged chronologically, each discussion presents a number of notable women and often places their achievements within the social context of a particular place and time. The books highlight women from around the world, though they often emphasize North American and European figures. The illustrations, usually in color, include reproductions of period prints, paintings, and sculptures as well as many photos of subjects and sites. Writers features significant women, from Sappho and Hildegard of Bingen to Maya Angelou, Margaret Atwood, and J. K. Rowling. An information-packed series on women who excelled.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
