"This book fills an immense lacuna in the history of women's education, the history of secondary education, and the history of curriculum. The use of multiple sources of information is ambitious and unusual. The lines of interpretation are provocative and fundamental, creating new conceptual dimensions for historians of women, education, and labor to explore.
"Education and Women's Work is a fine, complex book." — Barbara Finkelstein, University of Maryland.
