Pressestimmen"An important book... A model of concise and elegant research and writing."-Journal of the Early Republic "Branson argues convincingly that, contrary to the claims of recent historians, women in the revolutionary era had an identity as women, that many of them were feminists in these years. This book contributes a great deal to the current debate about the meaning of the American Revolution for women."-Sheila Skemp, University of Mississippi "Branson's work removes women from the remote confines of the domestic sphere, where they have resided for so long, and propels them to the center of politics and life."-Historian
