Publisher Comments:

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Illinois Women profiles the lives of twelve of the Prairie States most important historical figures born before 1900. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women, each in her separate field, helped build the proud history of Americas twenty-first state.

Anna Elizabeth Slough journeyed to Illinois when it was considered part of the untamed “Far West” and later ran her own hotel in Peoria. Myra Bradwell championed better working conditions and bravely paved the way for labor regulation. Jane Addams, the first woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize, spent her entire adult life educating and caring for Chicagos poor and downtrodden.

Each of these women demonstrated an independence of spirit that is as inspiring now as it was then. Read about their extraordinary lives in this captivating collection of biographies.

Synopsis:

Presents 12 women, all born before the twentieth century, who made a difference in the Prairie State, includes Mary "Mother Jones" Harris, Myra Bradwell, Anna Elizabeth Slough, and Jane Addams.

Synopsis:

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Illinois Women chronicles the stories of twelve Illinois women who lived in the era of True Womanhood and dedicated themselves to charity toward family and strangers. Unwittingly, these women forged a legacy that expanded well beyond Illinois' borders.

From First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln's devotion to country to ballroom dancer Irene Castle's fight for animal rights, the women of Illinois acted with progressive vision.

Meet the wife of the Mormon Prophet, Emma Hale Smith, who challenged ideology; Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams, the model of usefulness; Myra Bradwell, considered America's first woman lawyer; and African American entrepreneur Annie Minerva Malone, who built a beauty empire.

Born before the dawn of the twentieth century, the women herein paved the way for future generations. Author Lyndee Jobe Henderson presents absorbing biographies filled with rarely published details.
