This valuable reference work contains much useful information not found (or readily found) elsewhere, well-researched, about an historically-ignored segment of society. Notwithstanding its fondness for exaggeration pretty consistently found across the entries (too many of which are of supposedly great or singular people), this is an indispensible work for any serious reference collection.

This was an amazing bat mitzvah gift for my daughter (thanks Eve!) that was just in time to help her with her school report on Henrietta Szold. It is causing problems for me, however; this is the second night I've stayed up late reading it, even though I need my sleep. On the other hand, I now know a lot more about Gilda Radner, Judy Blume, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Golda Meir, the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, Rosalyn Yalow, Molly Picon, Lilith (the magazine), Roseanne, how Jewish women are portayed on television, Jewish women in popular fiction.... This is an amzing project, and a fantastic set of books. I highly recommend this set to anyone who is considering it enough to be reading this.
