"Mullenbach does a wonderful job of giving the big picture, while at the same time telling the stories of lesser-known individuals who younger readers will find especially relevant. She pulls no punches, revealing the hard times as well as the good things that came out of the era." --Nonfiction Monday on The Industrial Revolution for Kids
"Young women considering careers in law enforcement will be empowered by the women profiled here." --Booklist
"Women in Blue demonstrates the value that women bring to the law enforcement profession and how they are changing the culture of policing through communication, collaboration, and treating people with dignity and respect. Even if you are not considering a law enforcement career, you should read Women in Blue to learn how women successfully navigate a male-dominated profession." --Catherine Sanz, executive director, Women in Federal Law Enforcement Inc.
"Mullenbach offers frank and honest stories of the personal sacrifices made by these women as they achieved their professional goals." --School Library Journal
"A suitable introduction to the field of law enforcement with a salutary, rarely seen focus." --Kirkus Reviews
"An enlightening examination of a little-explored subject, offering both a historical resource and current insights into the profession." --Publishers Weekly
"This title would be useful for teens, educators, and librarians seeking to promote nonfiction, as well as possible career opportunities for young women." --VOYA
"Cheryl Mullenbach reveals the stories our parents and grandparents were too humble to tell. Read this book and, no matter how much you think you know, you will learn something new." --Sherri L. Smith, author, Flygirl, on Double Victory
