Southern Ladies, New Women book. Focusing particularly on South Carolina clubs, Southern Ladies, New Women shows that white women promoted a culture of segregation in which southern equaled white and black equaled inferior.

This book is a highly informative reading of the period post Reconstruction and the stories of women's clubs, both black and white and how they each deal with this period in history.

Goldwin Smith said in 1966: "We all regret that some monographs are unnecessary scribblings on the margins of history." This would be a very charitable description of this book. The author has no shame. I had her for a class and she assigned her own book to the students. This was the only history book assigned in this class, on Southern history. She could have assigned C. Vann Woodward or Edward Ayers, but no. In addition, she is a supporter of abortion.
