Review quote

"In this searching examination of the links between feminism, trade unionism, and socialism, Tax asks why the connection between the working-class struggle and the movement for women's liberation broke so often, and why, in the end, no lasting relationship developed... [An] intelligent study of the failure of understanding and fragmentation of interests." -- Library Journal "The Rising of the Women is indispensable for a comprehensive understanding of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminism." -- New Directions for Women "Rich in historical detail, powerful in its analysis and interpretation, and wise in its recommendations for contemporary mobilization." -- Steven M. Buechler, Contemporary Sociologyshow more
