Library Journal Review

DeLuzio (Female Adolescence) collects the work of 12 field specialists whose chapter-style essays mine the rich and diverse veins of history that exist within the three chronological phases of the women's movement. The guide opens with a time line that charts the progress of notable females, e.g., Bessie Smith and Sonia Sotomayor. Each subsequent chapter essay is a carefully considered and engaging read that closes with a multipage bibliography. A vital addition to all women's studies collections.-Savannah Schroll-Guz, Weirton, WV (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-This enlightening source is much more than a roll call of persons and events that influenced women's rights and the suffrage movement. Each chapter is written by a different authority in the field and explores the status of American women during a specific time period. The book begins with a depiction of the relatively high status enjoyed by Native American women prior to the arrival of Europeans and concludes with "Third Wave Feminists," which focuses on the modern woman who is committed to integrating feminist values into society. This title will be extremely useful for research, and individual sections are interesting to peruse on their own. Black-and-white archival photographs are sprinkled throughout. Each chapter ends with a succinct summary and a list of further-reading references. Themes that unite the chapters include the diversity of women involved in the struggle, the role of education in advancing women's rights, and the "equality-difference paradox," which questions whether the feminist movement would be best served by focusing on women's similarities to, or their differences from, men. Informative sidebars will pique readers' interest in lesser-known personalities. Primary-source documents, which are introduced with informative paragraphs explaining their significance, allow advanced researchers the opportunity to explore topics in more depth.-Patricia N.
