MEDIA REVIEWS
"In Their Time is quite a triumph of synthesis--an amazingly reasonable, down-to-earth and highly readable survey of women's activism on behalf of their sex, covering more than six centuries and many nations." -- Nancy F. Cott, Sterling Professor of History and American Studies, Yale University
"This ambitious, wide-ranging survey of feminisms in Western societies raises provocative questions for readers of every background and persuasion. Marlene Le Gates's thought-provoking analysis of repeated challenges to sexual inequality and of the overwhelming obstacles and scorn challengers confronted over many centuries is guaranteed to provoke discussion and debate." -- Karen Offen, Institute for Research on Women & Gender, Stanford University
