Reviews

'A landmark in the study of the women's movement. The book is at once an invaluable research tool and a source of fascinating information on its subject. Author and publisher are to be congratulated on its publication. - History Today

'A wonderful source for researchers and general readers alike. This is a book that you can consult with a purpose or browse through at random. It informs, but it also diverts.' - Financial Times

This series aims to re-establish women's history and to continue to challenge the assumptions of much mainstream history.
