Wells Barnett, one of the first Black investigative journalists and the woman who founded a home for young unwed mothers in Chicago, and Emma Bell Mills, who recorded rural mountain life through words and paintings. The women featured in this book, all born before 1900, influenced society in ways that still affect us today. Susan Sawyer, the author, notes that these women are linked by "their determination to triumph over challenges, their remarkable fortitude to overcome adversity, and their courage to remain strong in difficult times.
