Seventeen essays on women in partisan politics before the modern era by Melanie Gustafson, Kristie Miller, and Elisabeth Israels Perry. These stories show that women’s participation in political parties has been much more lengthy and varied that previously thought. They show the diversity of women’s political commitment, loyalties, and tactics.


“These essays set a new standard for excellence in women’s political history.”
—Susan Ware, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University

“This fine book marks the coming of age of a new field of study—the history of American women in partisan politics.”
—Kathryn Kish Sklar, Distinguished Professor, SUNY, Binghamton
