Colorado Women: A History

     Published by University Press of Colorado (2012), Colorado Women: A History is the first full-length chronicle of the lives, roles, and contributions of women in Colorado. from prehistory through the modern era.

     Each chapter addresses the everyday lives of women in a certain period, placing them in historical context, and is followed by vignettes on women's organizations and notable individuals of the time.
