Library Journal Review

Olsen has compiled a fascinating view of independent women throughout history, one for each day (birthday, death date, or arbitrary placement) of the year. Included are women from various cultures, notable for an event or many accomplishments. Entries are editorialized summaries with fresh facts on the known and an introduction to the obscure. Frustrating is the omission of many known death dates and the sparseness of some entries. Illustrations, largely from the Library of Congress, are excellent (though not always linked to entries), and the selected bibliography has some intriguing titles. The index lacks cross-references, and a profession/career index would have been helpful. Despite these limitations, however, this is an excellent source for library collections.-- Rebecca Sturm Kelm , Northern Kentucky Univ. Lib., Highland Heights (c) Copyright 2010.
