This unique collection includes over fifty articles by more than thirty-five diverse American women who revisit, celebrate, and share defining moments in their lives. Readers will see the universal in milestones of body, mind, family, career, and personal empowerment—whether joyous or difficult, chosen or unexpected, common or rare. These are poignant passages of women, told by talented and award winning writers: intimate glimpses into the lives of our sisters, friends, aunts, mentors, wives, grandmothers, partners, mothers, daughters—ourselves.

Praise for Contemporary American Women: our defining passages

Even though this collection is about contemporary 'American' women,
the stories are universal. As I read each one, I can see myself in them.
—Supriya Bhatnagar, Director of Publications, Association of Writers & Writing Programs;editor of The Writer's Chronicle

These experiences exemplify the range of passages that existing anthologies
have yet to address in a single volume. The authentic, often lyrical prose
speaks to a broad audience within and beyond academics.
—Diane LeBlanc, Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies
and Director of College Writing, St. Olaf College; Bechtel Prize winner.

This collection reveals those intimate moments that change women's lives:
the way we tough it out, break down, and become whole again.
—Arlene L. Mandell, Pushcart Prize nominee;

American Association of University Women's short story contest winner, 2008.
