Reference & User Services Quarterly
"Because it expands the information available on women who are often just mentioned in passing in historical works, this volume is interesting for both browsing and research. . . . [A]ppropriate for academic and public libraries with collections on women's or medieval and Renaissance studies, although its writing style would appeal to a high-school audience as well."
