Women in Early America: Crossing Boundaries, Rewriting Histories

(p.1) Introduction
Women in Early America

Thomas A. Foster

NYU Press

The introduction situates the following chapters in the context of existing scholarship on early American history and on women’s history. It argues that the original feminist goal of recovery has not yet been realized and that more scholarship is needed on women. It also argues that more scholarship on women is needed in the literature on early America and more is needed on early American women in the literature on women’s history, which tends to focus on the twentieth century.

Keywords:   early American history, feminism, women’s history
