“By identifying the parallel emergence of the women’s movement and the growth in the executive branch, Martin skillfully demonstrates how our political system can accommodate the demand for change and also maintain a stable government.”
Perspectives on Political Science  
“Martin’s analysis provides overdue insight into the relationship between the presidency as an institution and women as a leading interest group.”—National Journal
