Tracing the stories of women like Julian of Norwich in the fourteenth century, through Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, to contemporary authors like Toni Morrison and Barbara Kingsolver...a new anthology sets out to record and document seven centuries of writings by women.

The two-inch thick, thin-paged and totally compelling book is called Women's Worlds, and is the work of six different editors, including UVM Associate Professors, Lisa Schnell and Mary Lou Kete. The lead editor is UVM English Professor Robyn Warhol-Down. She spoke with VPR's Jane Lindholm about the book.
