I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
Part I was an excellent introduction to this amazing cast of women. I would advise readers to have some knowledge of the political landscape of the era. The author does not spend a ton of time giving the reader background information but instead dives right into how things relate to the women being discussed.
