'In this book the student will find authentic history; the liberation-seeking woman will find food for thought; the forward looking Christian will benefit from a backward glance. The sociologist will find a woman's view of society, with a wealth of case-histories. he will also see early examples of co-operatives, discussion groups, special purpose savings accounts, public health legislation, family welfare and a family wage, information centres and "life-lines". he will in fact see the first ombudswoman at work.'
