Well-written, interesting history. Occasionally the text sexualizes the women in weird ways and at odd times, beyond just commenting on how the press at the time perceived them. It was bizarre, but only happened about twice, so it's not something you have to wade through to get to the history. The bits about Leopold and Loeb were very interesting, and I was a bit disappointed when there wasn't more about them. I'll have to find a book about them now.
