      "Blewett challenges historians to incorporate gender analysis and
        a tradition of working women's protest into the history of the American
        labor movement."
        -- Georgia Historical Quarterly
      "[Blewett's] detailed reconstruction of feminist perspectives in
        shoeworker protest and the divisions created by the competing loyalties
        to sisterhood and to working-class families is among the best available.
        . . . With works like this, it should be impossible to write about the
        American working class without including women."
        -- Historical Journal of Massachusetts
      "A highly stimulating and rewarding book."
        -- Journal of Interdisciplinary History
