    1. Kathi Jackson clearly did a tremendous amount of research to put this book together: she did a great job. The stories are wonderful and it's awesome learning about these women, whose stories have been so frequently neglected. However, the reason I didn't give it a better rating is because I got bored halfway through, feeling like I just kept reading the same stories over and over. Jackson does warn the reader, in the introduction, that much of the book is repetitive because she wanted to include [...]
