The women who tell their stories in Written By Herself, Vol. II represent three generations, four continents, and a range of experience that is equaled only by the diversity with which they transform life into literature.Here are Englands Vera Brittain, commemorating the deaths of the men she loved in the carnage of World War I- Emma Mashinini, who endured imprisonment and torture as a labor organizer in South Africa- Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, the daughter of Indian aristocracy who became an architect of her countrys independence- and Edith Mirante, the wisecracking American whose passion for justice took her to the opium trails of Burma.

Collected in this stirring volume, their voices demonstrate the ways in which women strive for power, inclusion, and autonomy-- and never fail to move, inspire, and instruct us.Contributors include: Margery Perham,Isak Dinesen,Shudha Mazumdar,Vivian Gornick, Vera Brittain, Elspeth Huxley, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, Gloria Wade-Gayles, Angelica Garnett, Emma Mashinini, Meena Alexander, Edith Mirante, Mary Benson, and Ruth First.
