Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253206340, Paperback)

"When historians take women’s movements and gender differences in organizations... seriously, this book will become part of the canon.... a forthright effort to view women’s participation in politics in exciting new ways." —American Historical Review

"The work not only fills a gap in knowledge of women’s radical politics, but also addresses current concerns of feminist scholars." —Choice

"The book brings us something of the excitement of the revolutionary possibility lived by these women—and the frustration of their encounter with male resistance to including women’s emancipation in the revolutionary program." —Signs

"Theirs is a story of commitment and creativity, of steadfastness and practicality, of communal endeavour and the bleak individual fate of defeat, hardship, and exile." —Gender and History

"Ackelsberg, in the roles of both historian and activist, has crafted a volume that speaks to a wide variety of interests.... Her story is rich with the memories and voices of women... " —The Women’s Review of Books

"The author examines the autonomous women's liberation organization in late-1930s Spain, which represented an alternative to the individualistic perspectives characterizing mainstream feminist movements of the time." —Smith Alumnae Quarterly

"... particularly strong on the ideology and organization of this radical women's group of the late 1930s." —Society for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies Bulletin

"Ackelsberg gives the reader a fine explanation of the Spanish events, the general perspective of anarchism and the inspiring goals and struggles of Mujeres Libres." —Fifth Estate

Ackelsberg explores the development of Mujeres Libres, founded in 1936 during the Civil War in Spain as an organization dedicated to the liberation of women from their triple enslavement—to ignorance, as women, and as producers.
