Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Feminism Book lives up to the Big Ideas series name, covering aspects of feminism from 1700 to the present. Each four-page section is prefaced by a primary quote from a significant feminist related to the issue, like Margaret Sanger in the section on birth control. A sidebar gives information on changes to the law wrought by key feminist figures. Using diagrams and accessible text, this is a remarkably detailed overview of the movement, changes, and parties involved. The book concludes with a directory of feminist thinkers and activists, a glossary, and a detailed index. Given the current attention women's issues are getting, this timely volume has a place in middle, high school, and public libraries.--Ann Welton Copyright 2019 Booklist"
