Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am enjoying this book, although I got it for a college paper. It's the first I've found about women helping make policy for this country. Many books mention how some women's group, or some woman (usually un-named) helped out a man whose name is all over the topic of choice (as if he did it all by himself), but this book spells out the names of the groups and the individuals who brought us some of the most necessary and useful (but often taken for granted) laws this country has known... WHO doesn't want safe foods and medications? Since our laws have been used as the gold standard worldwide and countless numbers of lives have been saved by the FD & C Act and other FDA standards for foods and medications, it's sure nice to know the names of some great women who led the march to make this country great in yet another area.
