"The New Woman International reveals the complicated web of intentions, receptions, and conditions of women around the world as formulated by emergent reproductive technology." - Brooklyn Rail

"This book is particularly relevant in this current era, in which it is more important than ever for us to be adept at analyzing messages in visual media. This is a necessary and potent text for anyone interested in visual culture and feminism." - International Center for Photography

"The New Woman International delivers an exciting, fresh, and diverse examination of the imagery, consumer culture, metropolitan life, and technology that gave rise to startlingly innovative feminine symbols that changed gender norms." - Afterimage

"For readers interested in feminist modernism and popular culture, the editors have assembled truly stellar examples of new methodologies in book history, periodical studies, global modernisms, film studies and multimedia studies." - The Latchkey Journal of New Woman Studies

"The New Woman International has accomplished an enviable level of coherence, organization, and balance. It covers a broad geographic and historical range while maintaining a tight thematic and theoretical focus; it encompasses diverse scholarly approaches and manages to bring them into a coherent and meaningful conversation with each other; and finally, it succeeds in producing a true interdisciplinary polyphony, without losing sight of the unifying subject of study: the role of the New Woman in the technology-based visual arts of film and photography. It is not difficult to imagine that all of the contributions to this volume, including the excellent introductory essay, could become required reading for students in a variety of disciplines: the visual arts, German studies, and women's studies." - German Studies Review

"In addition to its significance to scholars, the interdisciplinary nature of this collection recommends it as an excellent reader for courses covering nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography, mass media, and, above all, feminist history." - Woman's Art Journal

"[The New Woman International] shows why visual autonomy was so important to women's political and domestic emancipation, and it contributes to the recent project to draw out transnational linkages between these syndicated modern feminine types with much detail, diversity, and applied creative analysis." - Modernism/modernity
