This text argues that women's changing role in European and American society was critical to the Dada spirit and movement. Debates about birth control and suffrage, a declining male population and expanding female workforce, the emergence of the New Woman, and Freudianism were among the forces that are seen to have contributed to the Dadaist enterprise.
Paperback, 706 pages

Very good. I learned a lot. The women in Dada have rarely been included in the other scholarly books about Dada.

Some important women missing here, and the authors really don't know how to evaluate Emmy Hennings'(she's very much side-lined), achievements but a useful survey.
