Notes:

by stamref (WorldCat user on 2008-04-21)

What McMillen does best in this book is re-create the environment of the mid-nineteenth century (which will not feel totally unfamiliar to women who were living through the late 1960s) and then to paint a detailed and strikingly personal account of four women who acted against all constraints to begin to change the world. No, they were not alone; yes, it mattered what they wore; of course, their male relatives often were mystified; and alas, we still have a way to go. This is the world and the pivotal moment in history that McMillen brings to us at another pivotal moment in our time. The light she shines is illuminating in every sense of the word and she manages to have a bit of fun in the telling of a serious subject. Come to think of it, that's the way history unfolds: undertaken by the brave and the committed, through the ups and downs, day by day.
