"From the Native Americans and early immigrants to the women in industry and politics in the 18th and 19th centuries, through feminist theorists and activities in the 20th century, to the voices of several teenagers at the end of the century, the women here represent a wide variety of lifestyles.... The array of lives here is impressive, and the original language also colors the experience with authenticity and vigor." -- School Library Journal
