From the valley to the summit: a brief history of the quiet revolution that transformed women's work
Abstract: Women have reached summits throughout recorded history and their accomplishments have been touted by contemporaries as evidence that women could achieve greatness, contrary to accepted wisdom. But it has taken considerably longer for substantial numbers of women, not just a few tokens, to reach the peaks. Until recently the vast majority of women?even college graduate women?occupied the valleys, not the summits. They had jobs, not careers.
