Editorial Reviews

Review

"John Blundell has done a superb job of identifying 20 ladies who believed in the principles of liberty and a society based on free-market principles. Several are well known but others not so well known. This book brings to light the stories of those who are not so well known which are so important. It is must reading." --Sally C Pipes, President, Pacific Research Institute, San Francisco

"Ladies for Liberty is an inspiring read for any American, but especially for the scores of modern-day female patriots whose ways were paved by the outstanding women in this book. Blundell moves chronologically through American history and the freedoms for which women have fought freedom from government oppression and over-taxation, freedom from slavery, freedom to vote, and freedom to succeed as an entrepreneur. The fact that we have come full circle underlines the importance of continuing the fight to protect these freedoms, and makes Ladies for Liberty all the more timely and significant. Thank you, Mr. Blundell, for providing so many superb examples of women after whom modern-day female patriots can model ourselves." --Jamie Storey, President, The Grassroot Institute of Hawaii

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Richard Kerr on October 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In Ladies For Liberty John Blundell presents a pleasantly readable review of our nation's political and social history, from the mid-1700's to the late 20th century. Into that framework he weaves the private lives and public accomplishments of 20 remarkable American women, champions of liberty all.

Some, e.g., Abigail Adams, are known to all: others, e.g., the Grimke sisters, are known only to real history buffs. But Blundell brings each to life with a rich narrative style in a book that should interest every student of American history.

The chapters are short, interesting and engagingly written, and the women are not always the ones we read about in school.

While many of the subjects are well known (Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Ayn Rand) the chapters I found most interesting were the ones on American heroes who I knew little or nothing about. The story of Madam CJ Walker was my favorite. How a women born to former slave parents worked her way up eventually starting a fabulously successful beauty business to become the wealthiest women in history is an American success story that all of us should know about. Read this book and be inspired.

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
This book highlights the accomplishments of many women who made invaluable contributions to America. The subject matter was fascinating and worthy of being told. I found the author's choice of words and presentation style awkward and found I had to re-read sections to follow his thought process. It is as if it had been written without the beneft of another set of experienced eyes such as an independent editor.
