"And if you’re a fan of true crime, you should know the work of pioneering journalist Elizabeth Garver Jordan. She was one of the few women to cover the Lizzie Borden and other murder trials…and did so with an innovative, narrative style that captivated the country. She championed women’s rights, denounced sexual violence, turned out detective tales and novels and if Emma Stone hasn’t optioned her story, well then Hollywood knows nothing"

 The Superwoman and Other Writings by Miriam Michelson was included in Publishers Weekly's round-up of new books about "historic as well as contemporary political trailblazers" that "offer an intimate perspective on women's engagement in the public sphere": "Edited by Boston College professor Lori Harrison-Kahan, [the book] includes a foreword by Michelson's great-great niece, Joan Michelson, who writes that her relative 'personally and persistently kept the women's suffrage movement and its key players front and center in the news of the day'." See "The Political is Personal: Women's Suffrage Centennial," Publishers Weekly, 6 September 2019.
