"Profoundly moving. . . . Readers mining this material, interacting directly with the authors, cannot help but reassess the historically static, stereotypical image of 'Japanese Woman' familiar to us all. . . . We see women who were complex, real people." -- Barbara Molony, Journal of Asian Studies
"Through these translations Mikiso Hane has reunited women with a historical political tradition, showing us how vital a part of that prewar protest they were." -- Women's Review of Books
"[Hane] uses biographies and memoirs to tell the stories of 13 Japanese women who joined left-wing groups to fight . . . injustices and remained steadfast despite hunger, homelessness, torture and imprisonment." -- Elizabeth Hanson, New York Times Book Review
