Women have contributed to society in innumerable ways that have often gone unnoticed throughout history; this collection of stories remedies that mistake with a thoughtful selection of courageous and resourceful women who overcame the discrimination towards their gender and left a lasting legacy in their states. Tales span geographical, social, ethnic and generational divisions, with vivid biographical chapters that detail what life was like for them, and their impact upon the world they lived in.

More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Georgia Women introduces such women as Rebecca Felton, the first female U.S. senator, Sarah Freeman Clarke, a painter who choose a career in art, Juliette Gordon Low-the founder of the Girl Scouts, and more. 183 pages, softcover, indexed.
