"Sensitive and remarkably balanced . . . . Ginsburg's book implicitly challenges the view that the two movements--pro-choice and anti-abortion, or feminist and anti-feminist--are simply ideological opposites, one arising in hostile reaction to the other. It leads us to suspect strongly that . . . the two movements have common roots in anxieties widely shared by women in late-twentieth-century America . . . .Excellent."--"The New Republic
