'Even when they have been recognized in their lifetime, women photographers have been erased from the history of the medium. This beautiful book sets the record straight'
'A landmark publication'
'As 'A World History of Women Photographers' demonstrates, women have been involved at every stage in the development of the medium, frequently in the front ranks ... There are many famous names in this vast survey...but the surprise pleasures are the lesser known'
The New York Times Book Review
'A huge variety of expression and experimentation by women photographers … Magisterial!'
