Description
 
Examines the lives of 12 strong and determined women, all of whom broke through social, cultural, and political barriers to advance womenís roles in the arts, on the battlefield, and in the pulpit. These pioneers fought against social norms and prejudices, making contributions to society that still have an impact today. They include Molly Pitcher, who replaced her fallen husband in the Battle of  Monmouth; Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Americaís first ordained woman minister and campaigner for womenís rights; Jessie Redmon Fauset, who nurtured the Harlem Renaissance movement; and Alice Stokes Paul, who devoted herself to the fight for womenís rights and wrote the Equal Rights Amendment.
