Sources of Strength: Women and Culture
Lisa Hunter, editor, Education Development Center, Newton MA, 1980. Paperback.

These individual units provide background information, first person accounts, and activities which ask students to evaluate the degree of economic, political and personal power a woman may exercise in a given culture. They look at womens' lives in traditional settings and then what happens during periods of change. The "Women in Nigeria" unit gives information on village life and changes which occurred during European colonization and national independence. The "Women in China" unit looks at traditional life and continuity and change that happened during the revolutionary years. Other units examine similar themes for women in Chinese-American and African-American history, concluding with a student oral history project.
