"Rosen has broken entirely new ground in what will surely remain the definitive study of urban prostitution in America for many years to come."

"An unusually interesting and revealing study.... The situation of the turn-of-the-century prostitute was a brutal metaphor for the situation of the turn-of-the-century American woman.... In The Lost Sisterhood, therefore, Ruth Rosen explores a far large subject than at first meets the eye."

"It was as if all the world could be set right be making the brotherls dissapear from America's cities. Ruth Rosen, in her perceptive book... put[s] together a picture of the women and the urban subculture in which their work was rooter....The Lost Sisterhood is intelligent in its discussion of class attitudes and demystifying in its description of the economic basis of prostitution."
