MEDIA REVIEWS
"Diversity of approach is central to Sian Reynold's eclectic and highly satisfying "France Between the Wars."
-"Journal of Women's History
"Sian Reynolds has written an exceptionally rich account of gender relations in France between the two world wars. . . . Reynolds deftly shows how traditional accounts have ignored the new ways in which women as well as men were becoming politicized in this period . . . Despite the fact that they were not formally enfranchised, French women from all walks of life engaged in a variety of political activities in the 1920s and 1930s that helped determine public policy: they lobbied for social welfare, marched for peace, went on strike and continued to demand the vote. It is the virtue of Reynold's work not only to have recovered these activities and contrasted them to those of men, but also to have explored the often subtle forms of gender oppression that inhibited women from participating even more fully in the conflicts and the public debates of the era."
-Alice Conklin, University of Rochester
"This is gender history at its most nuanced and most complex, and constituties an invaluable addition to the growing literature on interwar French society, culture and politics."
-Alice Conklin, University of Rochester
