“This wonderfully researched and readable book has done an excellent job of giving another view of what it took to make this country. Essential for academic and public libraries. Enjoy!”
Welcome to my site. I’m Nancy Rubin Stuart, a writer of nonfiction articles and books. I’m fascinated by people in situations that challenge, perplex, or delight them—people like you and me.
While 2021 holds promise for happier, healthy times, there’s still a war on women.
Pay inequality still exists and now, because of the pandemic, even women who work remotely often find the responsibility for supervising or educating their children falls largely on them.
Why does this keep happening? Tradition has a lot to do with it. While changing ideas and roles for women have become a reality, many of us still fear being considered “unwomanly” in the eyes of men.
Those are questions which inspired me to research history’s most powerful, but often forgotten, women. You can learn about the unsung heroines of the past in the series of books described on this site.
What am I doing lately? I’ve just completed a book about Benjamin Franklin’s wives and sweethearts through a post-feminist lens published by Beacon Press. Watch for announcements about its publication in February 2022.
Naturally, I’m working on a new idea but it’s too early to announce anything about it. More when I’m further along!
