In 1987, American feminist Charlotte Bunch penned the now-famous phrase, “You can’t just add women and stir.” Instead of simply tacking on a few paragraphs about women to male-dominated historical accounts, Bunch argued that scholars must reshape their understanding of history, giving women’s actions and views equal weight to those of men. Entering the Fray demonstrates that analyzing the experiences of women can broaden scholarly knowledge of a variety of topics often underexplored in southern history.
