How have women experienced, influenced, and driven the development of photography? This fascinating and informative volume gives you insight that may be overlooked, or at least not as obvious in general histories of photography. A must-read for students of photographic history in general and for women and girls who want to learn how women, some renowned, some largely forgotten (though well worth remembering) have used this powerful medium to express their vision and to earn a living.

This book deserves all of the praise it has earned. Dr. Rosenblum is passionately involved in the art and craft of photography. She has a world view that she puts to great use here. One of the best and most respectful things about this survey, aside from its obvious profusion of well-chosen photographs and the assured and authoritative commentary, is the effectiveness of Dr. Rosenblum's knowing method of assemblage. In the arrangement of these photographs there is ample room for readerly associations, emotions, and thought. The commentary, both in form and content, reinforces this. We are in the hands of a gifted teacher, in fact. Whether it is a series of photos of human hands, folds of clothing, leaves, children's faces, natural forms - the reader is taken on a deeply affecting, associative journey, and the results run deep. This is in addition to this book's obvious workhorse usefulness as a terrific reference work.
One hundred pages at the book's end are devoted to notes, careful and thorough biographies of the photographers, a selected bibliography, and an index. The production values are first-rate. A wonderful book.

If you're a photographer - at any level - with an interest in the women who made their mark in this field, this is a book you'll enjoy having in your personal library. There were many women photographers over-looked for too long, it's time for them to get their due respect
