Editorial Reviews

Review

"... a remarkably comprehensive work that is also easy and enjoyable to read...

Ultimately, From Birdwomen to Skygirls is a must-read for anyone intrigued by the history of aviation, and an important addition to the study of the women's movement. He makes the connection from the first bold fliers of the 1910s to those who led the charge for change in the 1960s and 1970s. In showing how authors depicted women beginning to fly, Erisman also shows how women in general learned to spread their wings."
