A team of authors “TA Historical Dictionary of British Women"
Europa Publications | 2003-12-17 | ISBN: 1857432282 | 336 pages | PDF | 4,87 MB
Offering invaluable information on the evolution of the female role in British society, this one-stop reference covers women whose work brought them before the public and who therefore played a direct and important role in broadening the horizons for women in Britain, as well as women who influenced events in a more indirect way, such as the wives of kings and politicians, mistresses, ladies in waiting, and society hostesses.
Originally published as The Europa Biographical Dictionary of British Women, this completely revised and updated edition includes key figures from the last 20 years, such as the Queen Mother, Baroness Ryder of Warsaw, Elizabeth Jennings, and Christina Foyle.
