"Ambitious, contentious, and deserving of wide circulation...Makes a provocative contribution to French history and to the study of gender politics."--French Politics and Society
"[An] outstanding study of the women textile workers of Lille, Tourcoing, and Roubaix in the decades leading up to World War I...Analyzes so many of the problems fundamental to both women's studies and socialism so clearly and forcefully that it deserves a very wide readership indeed."--Contemporary Sociology
"Hilden's carefully researched study is particularly welcome...[She] has sharpened our understanding of the difficulties women faced within the socialist movement as male leaders progressively marginalized them in trying to establish a constituency among male workes in the Nord...An important contribution to the study of women and the European left."--Journal of European Economic History
