"...This volume...is an excellent introduction to early women's movements." - Choice "This is a welcome addition to the field, and one that scholars will find particularly useful in their efforts to move their understanding beyond the well-known examples of British, French, or German feminism." - American Historical Review " ... [T]his book makes significant contributions to the project of understanding the history of the socio-political movements to improve women's condition in Europe as well as making a persuasive argument for the centrality of this history in the portrait of the Continent in the nineteenth-century." - H-France Review "[T]he anthology as a whole is a worthy contribution both to women's history in general and to the European history of late nineteenth-century feminism in particular. It fills a big gap in our knowledge and should be purchased by every college library and by any scholar in the field." - Journal of Modern History
