Restoring Women to History
Indiana University Press, Published July 1, 1999

Restoring Women to History is a series of books designed to integrate women's history into courses on Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Each book is written chronologically, easing their classroom use. Collectively their positive presentation of the roles, positions, and statuses of women, replete with evidence of areas where women have exercised power, challenges negative stereotypes about women in the non-western world. Areas of women's oppression are also revealed, showing the ways in which studying women in a category reveals both internal sexism and externally-induced dynamics. First developed in the late 1980s, the books are now available as separate regional paperbacks. They are:





 Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, Marysa Navarro, Decia Ali, Virginia Sanchez Korrol
 Women in the Middle East and North Africa, Guity Nashat, Judith E. Tucker
Women in Asia, Barbara N. Ramusack, Sharon Sievers
  Women in Sub-Saharan Africa, Iris Berger, E. Frances White, Cathy Skidmore-Hess
