Ulrich ranges over centuries and cultures, from the fifteenth-century writer Christine de Pizan, who imagined a world in which women achieved power and influence, to the writings of nineteenth-century suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton and twentieth-century novelist Virginia Woolf. She contrasts Woolf's imagined story about Shakespeare's sister with biographies of actual women who were Shakespeare's contemporaries. She uses daybook illustrations to look at women who weren't trying to make history, but did. Throughout, she shows how feminist historians, by challenging traditional accounts of both men's and women's histories, have stimulated more vibrant and better-documented accounts of the past.
