  Women in the American Civil War Tuesday 14 January 2003  
Think of Southern women during the American Civil War and Scarlett O'Hara immediately comes to mind.

Now novelist Paulette Jiles has put a very different kind of Southern woman at the centre of her new book.
Paulette Jiles joins Jenni to talk about her feisty heroine and our perceptions of 19th-century American women.
Enemy Women by Paulette Jiles, published by Fourth Estate; ISBN: 0007146418
