Women of Wisdom
“Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped our Times” profiles forty-six American women who pioneered in fields that had only been open to men. Overcoming enormous obstacles they succeeded in the arts, sciences, athletics, law, mathematics, politics, and other disciplines. As a result of the opportunities they created, they not only changed lives for women in America but around the world.In brief, in chapters accompanied by illuminating portraits, they share their journeys in their own voices. As their inspirational stories unfold in “Particular Passions,” the evolution of the Women’s Movement from the 1920s to the late 1970s in America is revealed.*Included below are women of accomplishment that I photographed but are not in the book.
