Editorial Reviews

"Colman expertly explores the enormous changes in the lives of women in their own homes and beyond. The strengths of this book are in the happy combination of abundant primary source material, a clear narrative style, and effective well-placed photographs. An important contribution."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer
