Reviews

"With patience, research, and an extraordinary sense of scale . . . French offers a striking overview of feminist theory and action alongside her own views, polishing off an exquisite history useful for both personal and classroom study." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "[French's] coverage is encyclopedic, but her prose is impressively accessible, creating a rare find: a page-turning, can't-put-it-down history text. . . . This is not a simple repackaging of history for women. French instead gives life to a new way of looking at the world as it exists for women. Her history is sure to inspire the burgeoning feminist in every woman and man. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and essential for universities with women's studies programs." --Library Journal, starred review "Deeply wise, lyrical, and powerful. With this empowering book as our guide, we face the twenty-first century--and its fundamentalist brutality--emboldened and reinvigorated. A global and spectacular literary, political, and cultural history." --Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt, Volumes I, II, III "A must-read for any women's history enthusiast." --Feminist Review
