Miss Flexner’s well-documented text is brightened by vignettes of…stout and colorful personalities… Her book has depth and amplitude.The New York Times Book Review

Never before…has a book done more to relate the women’s rights movement in the United States to the centuries-old struggle of the individual to attain his (or her) full stature in society. Woman’s fight for the franchise is here presented, not as a separate shred torn from history, but as part of the warp and woof of national progress… Miss Flexner admirably refrains from idealizing her subjects, rightly judging that the facts need no gilding to show in true proportions the stature of these valiant women.The Christian Science Monitor

A book to be read by every student in this country… This account will help us to maintain a truer image of ourselves as we try to finish up the struggle first launched so long ago.—Betty Friedan
