Reviews

Stone presents the full story of early-sixties public discourse about women's capabilities and clearly shows the personal, political, and physical risks taken by the women in pursuit of their dream.
--The Horn Book (starred review)

Readers with an interest in history and in women's struggle for equality will undoubtedly be moved.
--Publishers Weekly

This passionately written account of a classic but little-known challenge to established gender prejudices also introduces readers to a select group of courageous, independent women.
