"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
