'Brings together two of the most dynamic areas of contemporary historical research, global and gender history ... it presents examples from a variety of different cultures in ways that will be appealing to many readers.' - - Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee
'A comparative history of immense ambition ... [It] will be profitably consulted by gender historians. It successfully demonstrates that gender is a historical construct that is rebuilt by each generation and varies from culture to culture,' - Journal of Contemporary History
