This was a really good book. Genora Dollinger played a major role in the labor and feminist movement and she was determined to let people know that the two issues were not mutually exclusive. Throughout the book, the reader learned that Genora was also passionate about making the world a better place by getting involved in different movements as well.

Although the book was very good, at times it was very repetitive. Her role in the sit-downs in 1937 was a very formative time in her life and she related many of her future experiences to it. Genora was also an active member/leader of the SWP and SUA and the book focused a lot on her involvement in both parties and as a socialist.

Like I said the book was very good, but I wouldn't say it was one of my all time favorites.
