Distinguished Women Of Past and Present
http://www.DistinguishedWomen.com/

B+ CONTENT:
The author states she has created this site to honor women's roles in history. The lists of women and their links are the main content.

B AESTHETICS:
The site contains no graphics yet its light colors make it easy on the eyes. Its simple format keeps with the distinguished air of the text.

B+ ORGANIZATION:
The site is basically a list of links to distinguished women sorted by field (of study/expertise) or name. These lists bring up lists of links to specific sites on the internet. A nice touch is dividing the fields into two categories: before 20th century and after.

B+ REVIEW:
A major undertaking, this site certainly appears to have filled a niche. It also can be a continually growing entity given that the author asks for and accepts contributions of names. This list so far is quite extensive and is a great reference for anyone wanting to become more familiar with women's roles in history, society and culture.
