Desmond Clarke's book is an exemplary and welcome addition to this trend One initially striking feature of the book is that it brings together three authors who offer a range and variety of arguments in favor of women's equality, arguments that are sometimes quite at odds with one another Clarke has done us a great service in bringing these philosophers' ideas to a broader audience. (Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy)
Clarke's volume ... is fit to serve as the authoritative English translation of these works for our field. (Marcy P. Lascano, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
refreshing ... it will keep students awake and arguing, hopefully in edigying ways ... Highly recommended. (A. Rabil Jr., CHOICE)
