"Special features that enhance the reference value of a historical series are present, such as photographs and a timeline charting the success accomplished by American women. . . . Women's Roles in Twentieth-Century America is a welcome introduction for newcomers to the subject, including undergraduate or high school students researching American women in the twentieth century. The comprehensive timeline and excellent bibliography will encourage readers to delve into critical inquiry about this period. The work shows the move toward greater equality and social justice giving rise to more meaningful opportunities for grassroots and social reform activities."
