Om Barbara Egger Lennon

Facets of Barbara Egger Lennon's life define her as an ordinary white Midwestern woman of her time: teacher, wife, mother. Her work as a union organizer and political activist, however, complicate that picture. The way in which she balanced these roles illustrates how many women of her time shaped their lives in the face of three significant forces: work, family, and politics. Enriched by years of detailed diary entries that Egger Lennon wrote, Barbara Egger Lennon: Teacher, Mother, Activist deepens our understanding of the ways in which work and political activism could exist alongside the traditional role of women in the early 20th century. About the Lives of American Women series: Selected and edited by renowned women's historian Carol Berkin, these brief biographies are designed for use in undergraduate courses. Rather than a comprehensive approach, each biography focuses instead on a particular aspect of a woman's life that is emblematic of her time, or which made her a pivotal figure in the era. The emphasis is on a “good read," featuring accessible writing and compelling narratives, without sacrificing sound scholarship and academic integrity. Primary sources at the end of each biography reveal the subject's perspective in her own words. Study questions and an annotated bibliography support the student reader.

The stories of these vital contributors to American history deliver just the right formula for instructors looking to provide a more complicated and nuanced view of history." —Rosanne Lichatin, 2005 Gilder Lehrman Preserve America History Teacher of the Y... Praise for Barbara Egger Lennon "This biography of Barbara Egger Lennon artfully demonstrates how the New Woman impacted the lives of individual women who had to negotiate the demands of family and friends as they moved toward the independence and autonomous thinking the New Woman celebrated. Lennon's long career as an educator and labor activist is a shining example of how the New Woman carried her identity into the workplace and in very important ways generated change for teachers throughou... "Finally! The majority of students—by which I mean women—will have the opportunity to read biographies of women from our nation's past. (Men can read them too, of course!) The ‘Lives of American Women' series features an eclectic collection of books, readily accessible to students who will be able to see the contributions of women in many fields over the course of our history. Long overdue, these books will be a valuable resource for teachers, students, and the public at large." —Cokie Robert...
