"This collection presents and analyzes documents of the transnational dialogue between German and American women social justice reformers between 1885 and 1933. Speeches, correspondence, publications, and reports of women's conferences make up the wide array of documents that illustrate an intense and transatlantic exchange of ideas and friendships. As the editors write in the informative and in-depth introduction, this book contributes to comparative historical inquiry."

--Jennifer Anne Davy "Journal of Women's History"

"This selection... contains sufficient documentation of the difficulties and problems feminists went through to make the volume a useful contribution to the comparative history of women's activism and social welfare in Germany and the USA as well as to the ongoing internalization of feminist history."

--Richard J. Evans, University of Cambridge "German History"

"Well-framed and carefully researched.... Social Justice Feminists affords college readers the opportunity to hear the voices of women as world citizens and agents of social change, individuals for whom the democratic ideal remained a struggle rather than an assurance."

-- "Transformations"
