It is always good to be reminded of the sacrifices women have made for this country... otherwise men would have us convinced that did it all by themselves.
Some great little sketches of prominent and lesser-known American women, containing fascinating details of their lives.
Absorbing. And the section on how women got the vote was thrilling.
Good information but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend.
Excellent historical summary of one of our country's most important resources.
I found this book so interesting and informative that I immediately went out and bought a print copy so I could re-read it and look up names mentioned. It's great!
The reader was perfect. I learned some interesting facts. And I was pleasantly surprised to find information about african american women included in this book.
What a wonderful book! I had no idea of the horrendous struggles of women. I'm 42, knew some of the history of women in America, but as it was never really a part of my formal education, I missed a lot. I remember in 11th grade I had a progressive female teacher who introduced my all female class to the women's rights movement. We learned the major players but that was about it. This was a great listen! The reader was top notch. Never boring. I highly recommend this CD. Every women should hear or read this book!
Very disappointing. I found the book to be like reading a high school text book. Lots of facts, dates and events but not well connected and certainly not attention grabbing. One of few books I have not finished in years.
