Overview

Although Southern women are often portrayed as belles, the photographic record suggests the true diversity, complexity, and richness of their lives. In their roles as wives, mothers, teachers, pilots, businesswomen, and reformers, among others, women contributed greatly to the growth and development of the region. In Atlanta, they helped remake a small railroad hub into the thriving capital of the New South. The photographs in this book, drawn from the collections of the James G. Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center, depict Atlanta women at work and at play from the mid-19th century to the 1970s. In addition to illustrating women’s dramatically changing roles during this period, the volume situates these women within the emerging regional and national contexts of their time.

From society mavens to seamstresses, and from nurses to activists, these photographs bring to light the challenges, successes, struggles, and joys of Atlanta’s women.
