Abstract

Today we have Professor Kimberly Jensen on the show. She teaches in the Department of History and in the Gender Studies Program at Western Oregon University. We'll be talking with Kim today about her new book Mobilizing Minerva: American Women in the First World War (University of Illinois Press, 2008). I'm a bit of a war buff, so I was very eager to read the book. It certainly didn't disappoint. The book offers a detailed analysis of female physicians, nurses and women-at-arms and their struggles before, during and after the war. And it's fun to read. Did I say Kim got her Ph.D. right here at Iowa? Not that I'm biased...
