Book Discussion Instructions:
Each book discussion will be 150-160 words, using correct grammar and spelling.
Make sure to use specific examples, and provide proper citation.
Limit the use of quoted material to one per post. I am more interested in what you are able to get from the reading. Do not use quotes of more than two lines.
Make sure that you identify the author of the book, and cite the relevant page number for quoted, paraphrased, and summarized details used.
Please answer the following questions:
Why does Jean V. Matthews describe the late 19th and early 20th century as the Women's Era? Why do you think it was more comfortable to talk about the "advancement of women"?
