The Book of Woman’s Power. Introduction by Ida M Tarbell. Drawings by E R Lee Thayer. New York: Macmillan, 1911. First edition.
The book is an anthology of writings. The aim of the book, as described by Tarbell in the introduction, is to provide a positive image of women in opposition to the “melancholy figure” presented by those calling for suffrage and women’s rights. The works in this collection highlight the role women have played in human history and the dangers for society and democracy in altering this role.
