"They didn't ask to be remembered," historian Ulrich wrote in 1976 about the pious women of colonial New England. And then she added a phrase that has since gained widespread currency: "Well-behaved women seldom make history." Today those words appear on T-shirts, bumper stickers, and more--but what do they really mean? Here, Ulrich ranges over centuries and cultures, from the fifteenth-century writer Christine de Pizan, who imagined a world in which women achieved power and influence, to the writings of nineteenth-century suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton and twentieth-century novelist Virginia Woolf. She contrasts Woolf's imagined story about Shakespeare's sister with biographies of actual women who were Shakespeare's contemporaries. She uses daybook illustrations to look at women who weren't trying to make history, but did. Throughout, she shows how feminist historians, by challenging traditional accounts of both men's and women's histories, have stimulated more vibrant and better-documented accounts of the past.--From publisher description.… (mer)

I like feminist history; it's like a long drink of cool water. ( )

My main objection to this book is that I think devoting an entire book to a famous phrase that you yourself coined is maybe a touch self-aggrandizing. Having said that, I loved this exploration of women's history. It's not a survey -- Ulrich uses various examples to illuminate exactly what she was trying to say when she first wrote "Well-behaved Women Seldom Make History." (It's not necessarily what you think.) My favorite chapter was the discussion of slave narratives, although I also have a soft spot for Christine de Pizan so I liked reading about her, too. ( )

Back in the seventies, Ulrich coined the phrase that serves as the book's title in a history article. As it became more and more widely used as a slogan, she decided to write a book about women in history centered around that idea. There's a lot of great info in here about various women, but I'm afraid much of it felt like just one thing after another to me. It didn't really all hang together. YMMV.

4.5 stars. There was so much information in here about amazing women in history! I loved it, and in the last twenty pages I made a long list of feminist classics I need to read (or reread, in the case of The Yellow Wallpaper, because when I read it before I didn't know it was a feminist classic). Ulrich tells the story of feminism, essentially--of women's awareness of their place in history--through the works of three women: Christine de Pizan, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Virginia Woolf. It's well-put together and went quickly for me because it was so fascinating.
