What People are Saying About This

Kathryn Kish Sklar

The book is a tour de force of historical analysis. The Other Women's Movement pursues the very ambitious goal of reconstructing the historical relationship between feminism and working women in the United States between 1930 and 1980. The book brilliantly achieves this goal.
Kathryn Kish Sklar, Binghamton University
