Top customer reviews
well as very readable for myself as well as my students. Even though it stops in the mid-seventies, the documentation and
sources it uses make it such a great overall history of the women's rights movement in America, It covers early american
history, women of color, women on the frontier as well as immigrant mothers, flappers and the 50's thru the 70's.
A great source of information that is well written.
