REVIEWS Kirkus "An essential and impassioned addition to American history."
Karla Jay, The New York Times "For those who need a dose of pride and a slice of history, Faderman's portraits should strike a popular note. To Believe in Women is a decent starting point for learning about these pioneers and their contributions to American life."
The Washington Post "Solid historical research and analysis in a voice that is easily accessible and often quite moving."
Dianne Wood Middlebrook: "This book will raise eyebrows and consciousness."
