Book Description:
The State Of Ohio has produced an impressive number of remarkable women, women who have moved to the forefront of their professions or have enriched their communities or have made a difference in myriad ways. Among the more recognizable names are Toni Morrison, Annie Oakley, Halle Berry, Maya Lin, and Judith Resnick, but there are others as well, less recognizable, perhaps Florence Ellinwood Allen, Hallie Quinn Brown, and Mary Jobe Akeley who have made unique and important contributions to our culture. Although women constitute at least half of the population, they are still largely overlooked or underrepresented in documented history. Two Hundred Women from Ohio makes a substantial step in providing a record of women's achievement. Developed by the Ohio Bicentennial Commission's Advisory Council on Women, this collection profiles a few of the many women who have left their imprint on the state, nation, world, and even outer space. It celebrates and documents the achievements of two hundred women of many races, religions, and regions, who have broken barriers and records, been 'firsts,' and started movements and institutions. They are leaders and role models who will inspire all Ohioans to reach higher, dream deeper, and achieve what otherwise might seem beyond their possibilities. Professor Jacqueline Jones Royster presents the historical portraits of these fascinating and memorable women in an accessible and highly illustrated format. Two Hundred Women from Ohio will be a significant legacy of the Ohio Bicentennial and a valuable reference work for years to come.
