An amazing image filled look into women's history Oct 11, 2007
I LOVE this book. This book is filled with pictures, stories, diagrams and tons of details of a life I am glad I can only imagine. It even has a diagram that shows how a womans organs got squished and rearranged by the corsets they wore. It covers how woman lives all the way from the adults to the girls, from the slaves to the rich. It is so interesting you will forget you are learning;)
