"The time has come to define feminism; it is no longer possible to ignore it." The Century Magazine, 1914

Well-Organized and Well-Written!

I consider myself to be a feminist, and I am glad to see that a book such as this exists. Cott gives a thorough and detailed account about the origins of the modern feminist movement. It is direct and to the point, and gives people a simple step-by-step telling of what is meant to be a feminist in the modern era. Anyone who is interested in modern women's history must read this book!

The conflicts over which issues should be stressed, and the inevitable collapse of the movement once they reached the goal that they thought would bring them equality on many levels - and the impact that the realization that the vote was not the panacea for all ills, make this book a must read for those interested in twentieth-century women's history. Should be on every feminist and/or historians bookshelf.
