The Oxford handbook of American women's and gender history, edited by Ellen Hartigan-O'Connor and Lisa G. Materson.

Summary
The Oxford Handbook of American Women's and Gender History boldly interprets the history of diverse women and how ideas about gender shaped their access to political and cultural power in North America over six centuries. In twenty-nine chapters, the Handbook showcases women's and gender history as an integrated field with its own interpretation of the past, focused on how gender influenced people's lives as they participated in migration, colonialism, trade, warfare, artistic production, and community building. Organized chronologically and thematically, the Handbook's six sections allow readers to consider historical continuities of gendered power as well as individual innovations and ruptures in gender systems
