More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Minnesota Women (More Than Petticoats Series)by Bonnye Stuart
Synopses & Reviews
More than Petticoats: Remarkable Minnesota Women profiles the lives of thirteen resourceful women, all of whom were born before 1900 and displayed remarkable courage as they broke through social, cultural, and political barriers to advance womens roles. These women defied the social norms and prejudices of their time, making lasting contributions to society.
Meet Martha Ripley, a farmers daughter who graduated from medical school in 1883 and established a thriving maternity hospital in Minneapolis; Lena O. Smith, a civil rights pioneer who fought racial segregation and was the first black woman in the states history to be admitted to the Minnesota bar; and Maude Hart Lovelace, a home economist and business executive at General Mills who was instrumental in the creation of the companys advertising icon “Betty Crocker.”
Each of these women embodied a remarkable determination and independent spirit that continues to inspire new generations. Read about their extraordinary lives in this collection of brief and absorbing biographies.
