Doing women's history in public : a handbook for interpretation at museums and historic sites
"This book is a complete guide to interpreting women's history. It connects scholarship with the tangible resources and the sensuality that form museums and historic sites-the objects, architecture and landscapes-in ways that encourage visitor fascination and understanding and center interpretation on the women active in them"-- Provided by publisher.
