As a soon to be graduate student in French Studies, Linda Kelly's book is great tool for investigating the roles of women with regards to the French Revolution. As I constructed my paper for presentation, her work was relied on greatly. Easy to understand, a smooth text, the reader will have no difficultly in grasping the historical context of Ms. Kelly's writing. Recommended for those who are interested in Women's studies or their role in the French Revolution.
