John Blundell gives a lively portrait of more than 20 American women who spoke out for liberty, helping to shape the political and social fabric of the United States. His subjects range from frontier novelists to suffragists to the inventor of life insurance for women and a tax collector who challenged the IRS. Arranged chronologically, the stories add up to a history of America. "e;Ladies for Liberty "e;combats the myth that women want, and benefit from, big government. The underlying motivation of the women portrayed in these pages was that self-determination is a virtue, and that individuals should be allowed to pursue their own ends, free from the coercion of others. "e;Note: "e; Responses to the first edition were so positive that in the fall of 2012, Mr. Blundell added five more of what he considers to be the best stories in US WomenA's History, namely Anne Hutchinson, Clara Barton, Alice Paul, Rosa Parks, and Mildred Loving. They are included now in this volume.
