Editorial Reviews

Review

"'One Woman's Fight,' as readable as a novel, makes an ideal introduction to the subject of state/church separation. No one reading Vashti's appealing story is likely to forget this testament to the significance of the Establishment Clause, or the personal toll exacted when the wall of separation is violated at the expense of citizens--especially school children." -- Annie Laurie Gaylor, Freethought Today

"A personal account of her experiences in opposing religious instruction in the public schools of Champaign, Illinois. It is also a revelation of the price one must pay in running counter to the religious conventions of a small community . . . One Woman's Fight is but an introduction to a continuing battle on behalf of religious liberty and the integrity of secular education in a religiously heterogeneous population." -- The Saturday Review of Literature

From the Publisher

All of us are indebted to Vashti for her activism in defense of a basic constitutional principle.

"One Woman's Fight" is the fascinating story of Vashti Cromwell McCollum's fight against the Champaign, Illinois school district practice of teaching Bible Lessons during school hours in 1945. Despite great opposition and the community backlash against her, she carried her fight all the way to the United States Supreme Court which ruled in her favor in 1948 in one of the most important cases regarding the separation of church and state.

I discovered the story of Vashti while researching my own family tree and learning that she was my great, great, great aunt by marriage. Vashti passed away in 2006 and is buried in a small cemetery in southern Arkansas where her marker carries her name, birth date, day of her death, and the court case number of this important and historic battle. A great read of a Supreme Court decision I knew nothing about.

If you are a freethinking Mom these days you can relate to this lady's situation, but would you be brave enough to do what she did and in the era she did it in? She was a special person and I think people should know about her through reading this book about her.

Great story of an all little known American heroine. So glad she took time to write the book. (She recently dies at 95 years old) Should be a statute of her in congress - bit the cons would never allow it - unless one of JC was put alongside.
