Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Tarrant's] daunting and inspiring project...fills a void in feminist history and feminist scholarship; Tarrant has successfully located the feminist roots of Gender Theory’s and Second Wave feminism’s understanding of gender as socially constructed in a period believed to be entirely bereft of feminist thought." -- Catherine R. Mintler, Journal of International Women’s Studies Vol. 9 #3 May 2008

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer on November 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
Overall, a really interesting read on an often ignored subject -- the time period between the designated "first" and "second" waves. Her research on the lives and historical works of these feminist figures shows excellent academic research, yet the language of the book also proves accessible to a broad audience. Her meticulous attention to the details of these five women's activist biographies and works shows that some of the same political issues which continue to influence twenty-first century feminists -- including motherhood, the social constructions of sex roles and gender, education, and historical reasons for women's oppression-- were just as prominent in the minds of earlier female scholars.
