  • Information


Unequal Sisters has become a beloved and classic reader, providing an unparalleled resource for understanding women’s history in the United States today.

First published in 1990, the book revolutionized the field with its broad multicultural approach, emphasizing feminist perspectives on race, ethnicity, region, and sexuality, and covering the colonial period to the present day.

Now in its fifth edition, the book presents an even wider variety of women’s experiences.

This new edition explores the connections between the past and the present and highlights the analysis of queerness, transgender identity, disability, the rise of the carceral state, and the bureaucratization and militarization of migration.

There is also more coverage of Indigenous and Pacific Islander women.

The book is structured around thematic clusters: conceptual/methodological approaches to women’s history; bodies, sexuality, and kinship; and agency and activism. This classic work has incorporated the feedback of educators in the field to make it the most user-friendly version to date and will be of interest to students and scholars of women’s history, gender and sexuality studies, and the history of race and ethnicity.
