March is Women’s History Month, which celebrates the vital role of women in American history. Remarkable female entrepreneurs, scientists, politicians, athletes, artists, and spies, among others, abound historically and today. Our first female Vice-President has been elected. A woman heads the European Central Bank for the first time ever. The first female president of the New York Stock Exchange has been appointed. So many women paved the way for these exceptional leaders, and PRH and its distributed clients honor them in numerous titles, some of which are listed below.

Revolutionary Mothers
Women in the Struggle for America's Independence
A groundbreaking history of the American Revolution that “vividly recounts Colonial women’s struggles for independence—for their nation and, sometimes, for themselves.... [Her] lively book reclaims a vital part of our political legacy" (Los Angeles Times Book Review).The American Revolution was a home-front war that brought scarcity, bloodshed, and danger into the life of every American. In this book, Carol Berkin shows us how women played a vital role throughout the conflict.The women of the Revolution were most active at home, organizing boycotts of British goods, raising funds for the fledgling nation, and managing the family business while struggling to maintain a modicum of normalcy as husbands, brothers and fathers died. Yet Berkin also reveals that it was not just the men who fought on the front lines, as in the story of Margaret Corbin, who was crippled for life when she took her husband’s place beside a cannon at Fort Monmouth. This incisive and comprehensive history illuminates a fascinating and unknown side of the struggle for American independence.
