"Most compelling is how Berkovitch demands self-reflection among feminist scholars. In illustrating the link between international policy, the 'scientization' of gender (that is, the need for quantitative measures to represent womanhood), and the drive for data collection on equality, she reminds us of the historical context of our own research agenda."(Winifred R. Poster American Journal of Sociology)
"The writing has a very logical and clear progression... Overall, this book... will be of value to students of women's rights or of general human rights."(Jeannette Campbell South African Journal of International Affairs)
"This book fills a gap in the existing literature and provides compelling evidence of the important effect that international organizations have had on nation-states' passage of legislation addressing women's unique circumstances."(Patricia Fernandez-Kelly, Princeton University)
