Colonial Women offers a close look at the life of 18th century women. Most women worked in the home and cared for children, although a few held outside jobs.

• the rugged life of a frontier wife
• daily life in towns and cities
• the duties performed by slave women on a plantation as well as women in the master's family
• the special education of girls
• courtship and marriage—every woman's goal
• paid work that women were allowed to perform
• notable colonial women

Colonial Women

"...Tightly written texts offer balanced presentations, detailing various aspects of being a Colonial woman in a patriarchal society and the conditions that slaves endured in both the southern and northern colonies. Insightful comparisons of rural versus urban life enlighten and inform readers. Photographs of reenactors from Colonial Williamsburg and Old Salem and historical paintings from New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and other collections enrich the texts. Of special interest are the biographical sketches of notable people..." —School Library Journal, 01/04
