Praise

“A revelatory new history.”—Bookforum

“An impeccably researched … and thoughtful book. [Its] scope is impressive; it touches on nearly every conceivable subject: fashion, socialism, unions, housework, sweatshops, communal utopias, children, consumption, and of course, sex … It’s hard to imagine anyone who wouldn’t learn something from this book.”—Catherine Ramsdell, PopMatters

“Exhilarating … admirably lucid … Reading about the wild hopes of these early 20th-century pioneers, you cannot fail to be moved by the sheer exuberance of their imaginations.”—Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian

“Ambitious and eloquent … Rowbotham has a marvelous gift for explication and an eye for the illuminating quotation.”—Elaine Showalter, Daily Telegraph

“Fascinating … As the 21st century falters forward with faith wars and economic collapse, women need to be at the forefront of reimagining our world. This book is a timely reminder that we have been here before.”—Jeanette Winterson, The Times [London]
