"A powerful reminder that ultimately structural conditions are of prime importance if women's emancipation is to succeed. . . . Ghodsee's book ultimately reminds as, through the often moving testimonies of former activists she has collected, that women's activism, also when attached to or even dominated the state, can be effective and progressive." -- Tanja R. Muller * Twentieth-Century Communism * "Second World, Second Sex is a must read for anyone hoping to understand the complexities of a global women's rights movement that goes beyond the boundaries of Western, liberal feminism." -- Tony Pecinovsky * People's World * "An engaging narrative of feminist movements during the Cold War. . . . [Ghodsee's] work is vital in documenting a neglected component of feminist history while illuminating a new resource for feminist theorists and activists interested in thinking about the political project of gender justice outside the confines of dominant, Western, liberal feminism. Recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." -- C. E. Rasmussen * Choice *
