The Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History is a thoughtful, thorough and accessible survey of women in world history. The entries range from biographies to in-depth analyses with multiple subsections followed by a selected bibliography.

The entries follow one of three approaches to world history:

  • geographic, focusing on governments from prehistory to the present;
  • comparative, emphasizing universal experiences such as disability and religion; and
  • connective, exploring the interactions among peoples through experiences such as migration and globalization.
