Review "This collection of essays is designed to show the hidden history of women's involvement in the nonprofit world and discusses how women are using philanthropy to achieve social change."--The Chronicle of Philanthropy<br/><br/>"Women, Philanthropy, and Social Change is especially valuable for those launching new women's funds, individual philanthropists, and institutional grant makers committed to supporting social change that contributes to women's advancement. Students of philanthropy, social change, and women's history will discover lively narrative accounts and valuable analysis in these pages. The volume fulfills its intention to guide and inspire and, along the way, supplies case histories, data, and resources unfamiliar to many readers and personal stories that make for a very good read."--Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly<br/><br/>"Clift [argues] that any semblance of effective social justice philanthropy will only be achieved through increased funding for women and girls, as well as a more strategic and institutionalized understanding of gender and diversity." - --Feminist Economics

Leslie R. Wolfe, Ph.D., President, Center for Women Policy Studies : "Elayne Clift and her many authors have done a splendid job of conveying the importance of feminist efforts to build a philanthropy that nurtures women's leadership and empowerment. Indeed, philanthropy that promotes women's human rights also promotes democracy, sustainable development, social justice, peace and security - both within the United States and around the world. I recommend this book to all who work in the field." --Leslie R. Wolfe, Ph.D., President, Center for Women Policy Studies
