      By Genevieve G. McBride

      Women's Wisconsin: From Native Matriarchies to the New Millennium, made history as the first single-source history of Wisconsin women. This unique tome features dozens of excerpts of articles as well as primary sources, such as women's letters, reminiscences, and oral histories, previously published over many decades in the Wisconsin Magazine of History and other Society Press publications.

      Editor and historian Genevieve G. McBride provides the contextual commentary and overarching analysis to make the history of Wisconsin women accessible to students, scholars, and lifelong learners. Dr. McBride is Director of Women's Studies and an associate professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. A Milwaukee native, she teaches women's history and is the author of On Wisconsin Women: Working for Their Rights from Settlement to Suffrage, published by University of Wisconsin Press.

      Women's Wisconsin introduces readers to dozens of compelling Wisconsin women, including:

      • Ho-poe-kaw (Glory-of-the-Morning), an eighteenth-century Ho-Chunk woman chief. 
      • Juliette Magill Kinzie, whose memoir Wau Bun, the "Early Day" in the North-west describes her life at Fort Winnebago (Portage) in the 1830s.
      • Lavina Goodell of Janesville, first woman lawyer in Wisconsin, in the latter 1800s.
      • Nellie Sweet Wilson, an African American single mother.
      • Alice DeNomie, a young Ojibwe woman awaiting the return of her soldier sweetheart, who both worked in the defense industry in Milwaukee during World War II.
