A Review by Jo Freeman: 

http://www.jofreeman.com/reviews/womencongress.html

"This book is not bedtime reading or a beach book, but it is more than a research volume. Keep it handy for an occasional dip. Elegantly designed and modestly priced for a book this big, it’s also a suitable graduation present for an ambitious young woman."
