I usually dont go for this type of book. But I loved the title, Esp with having 2 daughters. Alot of women's history regarding jobs, women's rights, govt, etc. But alot of really good holsim, family thoughts. It was alittle upper middle class or just upper class at times. I like the author, she doesnt judge. The hx stuff got a bit old though.rating=86//22/98
