CHOICE Review

First in a new series, this book describes the evolution of nursing as a feminist profession. Lewenson describes the roles of early nursing leaders in shaping not only nursing but also feminism in the US. The ongoing struggles and accomplishments of these leaders are detailed throughout. The evolution of nursing organizations and formal nursing groups that crystallized nursing's role in health care are included. Chapter topics are presented in chronological order: "Formative Years," "Expanding Years," and "Taking Charge" cover the evolution of nursing concurrent with feminism. The exclusion of nursing from women's movement efforts is well described. Nurses' support for women's suffrage, and leadership efforts to improve the status of both the nursing profession and women in general, are elucidated. Tensions as well as cooperation between nursing and the women's movement are woven through the historical accounts. Photographs and appendixes embellish the text. Chapter notes provide extensive reference information to support the historical narrative. A fascinating and important book. All levels. S. Van Ort; University of Arizona
