Review quote

"Based on a wealth of primary sources, Two Sisters for Social Justice deals with significant and timely material and skilfully blends its subjects' private lives with their public careers. It is concisely and clearly written, analytical as well as descriptive, friendly yet not uncritical." --The Journal of American History "It is a major contribution to social welfare and women's history, and it deserves to be read widely." --Social Service Review "This engrossing book illuminates one of the most intriguing periods in the history of American middle class women, a time when women were shaping social policy and laying the groundwrok for what would be the reforms of the New Deal." --- Anne Firor Scottshow more
