Her Story: A Timeline of Women Who Changed America

New book that is quite a lovely read:  Her Story: A Timeline of Women Who Changed America by Charlotte S. Waisman and Jill S. Tietjen  (Harper Collins, 2008).

The women lawyers included in this book:

Bella Abzug
Sadie Alexander
Florence Allen
Violette Anderson
Myra Bradwell
Mary Ann Shadd Cary
Debora de Hoyos
Crystal Eastman
Marian Wright Edelman
Clara Shortridge Foltz
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Barbara Jordan
Belva Lockwood
Catharine Alice MacKinnon

The book is a beautiful, annotated (with text, photographs and illustrations) timeline.  The works cited at the back of the book would be an excellent research starting point for any biographer.  Also, the index of subjects is subdivided by profession — very handy!
