ChoiceWaugh is excellent at placing Lowell in her time, class, and place, with her desire to be 'scientific' and to distinguish the deserving from the undeserving needy. The author points out that Lowell faced and learned how to use the constraints of her gender, and how to adapt to and use the political system when necessary. Lowell's achievement of these skills demonstrates how women without the vote could influence political matters through connections and mobilizing public support. Waugh has made very good use of the relevant primary and secondary materials.
