From the Back Cover

In this landmark addition to scholarship, Nancy F. Cott, author of the 'The Bonds of Womanhood, ' offers a new interpretation of feminism in the United States during the early decades of this century--a period traditionally viewed as one in which women won the right to vote and then lost interest in feminist issues.

By Beth A. Emmerling on December 9, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book aptly describes the problems that arose within the women's movement post-suffrage and pre-second wave. The conflicts over which issues should be stressed, and the inevitable collapse of the movement once they reached the goal that they thought would bring them equality on many levels - and the impact that the realization that the vote was not the panacea for all ills, make this book a must read for those interested in twentieth-century women's history. Should be on every feminist and/or historians bookshelf.

I consider myself to be a feminist, and I am glad to see that a book such as this exists. Cott gives a thorough and detailed account about the origins of the modern feminist movement. It is direct and to the point, and gives people a simple step-by-step telling of what is meant to be a feminist in the modern era. Anyone who is interested in modern women's history must read this book!

Not very great, but not horrible. It is one of those books that I forgot as soon as I finished it. In other words, at least for me, it was not memorable.

While this book can be dry, it remains foundational to the study of modern American feminism.
