Melissa Blair’s research combines primary and secondary sources, making excellent use of interviews with activists and archival materials. The book is well researched, clearly organized, and persuasively argued. -- Amy Higer ― H-Socialisms
Blair’s book focuses on liberal rather than radical activists, local rather than national agendas, and small cities rather than large urban centers. In doing so, she demonstrates that feminism was a larger and more diverse movement than many of us have believed it to be. . . . This book provides a valuable case study of the challenges of making women’s lives matter. -- Jennifer Scanlon ― Journal of American History
This study’s focus is on groups often overlooked by scholars of the feminist movement in areas not normally considered hotbeds of feminism. . . . Blair’s argument that scholars must look beyond a narrowly self-defined group of feminists when exploring women’s activism in the late twentieth century is a significant contribution to the growing body of literature that seeks to expand the definition of feminist activity. -- Megan Taylor Shockley ― American Historical Review
