Abstract

This introduction of the three volumes on Women's History in Global Perspective, commissioned by the American Historical Association's Committee on Women Historians, discusses the state of research and trends in global women's history and explain the organization of the three volumes. The  three authors of the introduction, the teo authors  address the comparative themes that they see as central to understanding women's history around the world. They emphasize that the vast new evidence of global connectedness has revived the imperative to understand the world better and especially to bring into focus the worldwide history of women and underline  that  all essays  of the three volumes are devoted to surveying the most recent findings on women and gender in hopes of bringing teachers at all levels a practical introduction to the new data, historical issues, and historiographical debates from all regions of the world.
