(The Monterey Movie Company, $24.95 each or $69.95 for the set). Narrated by Rita Moreno and Dee Wallace Stone, this three-cassette video set highlights some of the many stories of women who left their mark on American society. Volume one includes women in medicine and social sciences; volume two features women in journalism, the military, and aviation and space; and volume three covers entertainment and the arts. Among those highlighted are Deborah Sampson Gannett (1760-1827), who disguised herself as a man so that she could fight in the Revolutionary War; Anne Newport Royall (1769-1854), the first female travel writer and one of the first to report "hard news"; Lucy Stone (1818-93), a pioneer in the women's rights movement; and Bette Davis (1908-89), a legend in the Hollywood movie industry.
