An enhanced emphasis on the role of women in the military helps students to understand the role of women in war. From its discussion of Women in Revolutionary America in Chapter 3 to its focus on Gender and the Military in Chapter 12, Through Women’s Eyes sharpens the focus on the long history of women’s involvement in war as both active civilians and military participants. Other new features include a fresh look at women’s work during World War II in Chapter 9.

Increased emphasis on the role of feminism in U.S. women’s history highlights continuity and change across time
. From the voices of Benjamin Rush and Judith Sargent Murray advocating for women’s education in Chapter 3 to the letters of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in Chapter 5 to documents focused on women’s liberation in the 1970s to a feature on the third wave in the final chapter, Through Women’s Eyes makes sure that students understand the long history of feminism in the United States—and the world.
