about this book

HELL HATH NO FURY fills a significant gap in the way we look at women's contributions and role in war. These compelling biographical essays give an in-depth sense of the widely different ways in which women across all cultures have participated in war--from the front lines to the the medical tents, in the air and on the sea, on the airwaves and as spies--and many roles in between.

Women have been involved in war as active participants from ancient times to today. They have been political leaders (Elizabeth I, Indira Gandhi); combatants (Artemesia of Halicarnassus, Lady Mary Bankes); spies (Vera Atkins, Ruth Beurton); diplomats (Nguyen Thi Binh, Condoleezza Rice); they have been involved with entertainment/propaganda (Dame Laura Knight, Jane Fonda) and torture (Dorothea Binz, Gerda Quernheim).

HELL HATH NO FURY groups these women--and many whose names have been forgotten--into sections for easy reference; within each section individual women are presented alphabetically. The book will ultimately introduce to students a gallery of women who have taken action, and who have challenged society's preconceived notions of womanhood.
