Editorial Reviews


"An important and timely analysis of the role of right-wing women's groups in contemporary America."--Political Science Quarterly

"This book would be excellent reading for courses on feminism, women in politics, and social movements."--Contemporary Sociology

"Schreiber's case-study method enables her to take a step back and ask big question."--Women's Review of Books

"Serve(s) as a detailed analysis of two highly prominent conservative women's organizations... does much to illustrate several key players in the conservative women's movement."--Feminist Review

"This compelling study proves definitively that women are major players in modern conservative movements. By examining how conservative women's organizations frame their positions toward such issues as abortion, pornography, and violence against women, Ronnee Schreiber shows that the politics of gender is transforming conservatism in complex and unexpected ways. A 'must read' for anyone interested in women and politics today."--Kathleen Blee, Distinguished Professor of Sociology, University of Pittsburgh

"The flourishing of anti-feminist women's organizations is an important but oft-ignored element of gender politics. Schreiber's book puts these organizations in theoretical perspective, and her empirical portrait will be of interest to scholars in sociology, political science, and gender studies. I learned a lot from this book, and recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about this movement."--Clyde Wilcox, Professor, Department of Government, Georgetown University

"With many analyses of the second wave of the U.S. women's movement, the countermovement it gave rise to has been little more than a shadowy presence in much of the academic literature. Ronnee Schreiber's book provides a thoroughly researched look at the major women's organizations within the countermovement, their strategic efforts to counter feminist groups and the issues they actively contest. Students of the American women's movement, political countermovements, and women's issues will find this an eye-opening addition to existing scholarship."--Anne N. Costain, Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies, University of Colorado at Boulder

"Ably executed, Ronnee Schreiber's convincing and innovative study contributes to a growing literature on conservative women that rightly stands beside a long-standing scholarly literature on liberal and progressive feminist women's organization. Graduate students and faculty looking for a strong review of the women and politics subfield and directions for future research will turn to this work for years to come." --Perspectives on Politics
