Meet Spirited Women of Nevada

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Nevada Women profiles the lives of twelve resourceful women, all of whom were born before 1900 and displayed remarkable courage as they broke through social, cultural, and political barriers to advance women's roles. These women defied the social norms and prejudices of their time, making lasting contributions to society.

Meet Ferminia Sarras, a Nicaraguan immigrant with four young daughters who arrived in Nevada in the early 1800s determined to seek her fortune as a miner . . . and succeeded; Dat so la lee, a Washoe Indian renowned for her basket-weaving artistry whose work is today preserved in museums; and Anne Henrietta Martin, a lifelong suffragette who fought for women's rights and was instrumental in securing the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote.

Each of these Nevada women demonstrated a remarkable determination and independence of spirit that continues to inspire new generations. Read about their extraordinary lives in this collection of brief and absorbing biographies.
