Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
By focusing on Paul's key role in propelling the American suffrage movement to success, this book is an important addition to the literature and should be welcomed especially by students and teachers of women's history. While most histories of suffrage have overlooked, dismissed, or misjudged Paul's National Woman's Party, Lunardini clearly and effectively argues its impact and legacy. She explains how the ideological conflicts that beset the women's movement in the war years are central to understanding its dissolution after 1920. Paul's work in drafting the Equal Rights Amendment (1923) should make her story of interest to contemporary feminists. Marie Marmo Mullaney, History Dept., Caldwell Coll., Caldwell, N.J.
