This book felt a bit confused in parts, but I did really enjoy it. It just seemed like it was trying to be a few things at once and so the central argument about well-behaved women making history got a bit lost. I thought it was most effective in the discussion of the abolition and first wave feminist movements.
I most identified with the book near the end in the discussion of women's studies classes and the women who didn't take them and later felt they ought to have. I'm feeling like that lately; like I'm coming to this all about a decade late and I'm trying to catch up.
Overall it was a really good book even if it didn't always seem to follow Ulrich's thesis.
