A Midwife's Tale
looks at the making of history from a woman's perspective, looking at three key works--the fifteenth-century Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan, Elizabeth Cady Stanton's memoirs, and Virginia Woolf's essay A Room of One's Own, to reveal how women both make and record history.
