    A helpful and engaging guide for the general reader, Envisioning Women in World History: 1500 to the Present not only tells the story of ordinary women's contributions to world history as well as demonstrating why and how "women's history" expands traditional thinking about the past. McVay first introduces earlier eras before moving to the modern (post-1500 CE) era. She explores the ways women impacted and were impacted by global processes such as the Triangle Trade, Imperialism, Industrialization. At the same time, she demonstrates how these processes were filtered through social constraints imposed by family structure, gender ideology, social hierarchy, and institutions. First written as a ​companion text for students in world history, women’s history, women’s studies courses, and introductory courses in sociology and anthropology, the book supplements core textbooks, monographs and course packs, and includes study questions and suggestions for further reading.
