"Women in the Pacific Northwest provides abundant examples of women's active roles as citizens who helped shape regional events, and adds new information to the growing literature on western women."
"New insights into the lives of pioneer Japanese women, urban black women, and the women of the Colville Indian Reservation make the reading of this collection well worthwhile. A solid regional study."
"This book contributes to the task of bringing the lives of Northwest women out of the shadows and provides an excellent model for others to follow. It is of value for the specialist in women's history as well as anyone interested in exploring all the corridors of Pacific Northwest history."
-Oregon Historical Quarterly
"This anthology is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature concerning the history of women in the United States and particularly the history of women in the American West. Its essays, which address the issues of woman suffrage, women's work, race and ethnicity, and the arts.. begin to remedy the long-time dearth of knowledge about women in the Pacific Northwest."
