Overview

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 women's roles. These women defied the social norms and prejudices of their time, making lasting contributions to society.
Meet Martha Ripley, a farmer's 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 state's 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 company's 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.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Selecting 12 or 13 women born in the 1800s (with one exception), the authors in this series have thoroughly researched the lives and achievements of women who stepped outside the normal roles of their time to make a social difference. The biographees expanded the roles of women, challenged racist attitudes, entered political life, prodded government to attend to medical and educational needs, and wrote books. Almost all were social activists; one became a balloonist. Most of the women will not be familiar to readers outside their state; a few achieved world recognition (Golda Meir and Edna Ferber came from Wisconsin). The books are professionally written and include b/w portraits of each woman. They are excellent choices for collections that focus on women or on the states from which they came. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Globe Pequot, 165p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 15 to adult.
