Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. In the final installment of her four-volume feminist history, French gratifies readers with an all-encompassing view of women's major and minor 20th century victories from all corners of the globe. French honors both male and female leaders, locating feminist uprisings in such unexpected places as Turkey, where reformist president Mustapha Kemal accepted women in his army and appeared in public with his educated wife unveiled. With patience, research and an extraordinary sense of scale, french examines the effects that the current major forms of government have had on women throughout the centuries, and correlates those findings with the current social and political moment in locations throughout the world. She also tackles the subjects of religion and war, which she claims are the two modern forms of patriarchy--men's way of successfully dominating not just women but other men. Her most curious and insightful volume, this book leaves no angle unexplored. Though often wordy, French offers a striking overview of feminist theory and action alongside her own views, polishing off an exquisite history useful for both personal and classroom study.

Review

"With patience, research, and an extraordinary sense of scale . . . French offers a striking overview of feminist theory and action alongside her own views, polishing off an exquisite history useful for both personal and classroom study."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[French's] coverage is encyclopedic, but her prose is impressively accessible, creating a rare find: a page-turning, can't-put-it-down history text. . . . This is not a simple repackaging of history for women. French instead gives life to a new way of looking at the world as it exists for women. Her history is sure to inspire the burgeoning feminist in every woman and man. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and essential for universities with women's studies programs."
Library Journal, starred review

"Deeply wise, lyrical, and powerful. With this empowering book as our guide, we face the twenty-first century—and its fundamentalist brutality—emboldened and reinvigorated. A global and spectacular literary, political, and cultural history."
Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt, Volumes I, II, III

"A must-read for any women's history enthusiast."
