Well Behaved Women…

You may have heard of a book (or at least the title phrase) called “Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History.” It’s an interesting study by Harvard professor Laurel Thatcher Ulrich on various women who are well known throughout history. Her pervasive theme is that…well…the title of her book says it all.

I recently added the book to my wish list and plan to read it soon. I’m late to the game – it was originally published in 2007. Here’s a book review from the NYTimes. And here’s another from the Deseret News.

Has anyone else out there read it? What did you think?

Cheers, Amy
