Women's stories are noticeably absent from the master narrative of the Populist and Progressive movements, where their struggle for civil rights was more evident in the Midwest than any other region in the country. This collection of eleven biographical essays highlights women leaders in the Midwest who challenged gender, racial, class, and ethnic boundaries in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Not only were these midwestern women powerful orators and active leaders, they were influential in shaping the culture in their communities. These pioneering women include Amanda Berry Smith and Carry Nation who helped lay the groundwork for the Progressive Era, Esther Twente who helped develop higher education, Elfrieda von Rohr, Mary Sibley, and Linda Slaughter whose religious affiliations gave them leadership opportunities for political and social influence, Frances Dana Gage who contributed to women s rights and temperance issues, Marietta Bones who championed the women s suffrage movement, Alice Moore French who was American War Mothers founder and first president, socialist Genora Dollinger who spoke out for quality of life and rights in organizing a strike at a General Motors plant, and Harriett Friedman Woods who held various state political offices and a national office.

Review:

This well-researched and nicely referenced scholarly work is exceptionally readable, making it appropriate for both lay and academic readers. In particular, its chronological organization makes it an entirely appropriate companion for undergraduate survey classes focusing on the history either of American women or of the Midwest. Its content would...provoke a critical reevaluation of the accepted narrative of American feminism. --South Dakota History, Summer 2010

This [volume] gives students an appreciation for the diversity of roles women created for themselves in a region with a reputation for religious and social conservatism. Recommended. Undergraduate and general collections. --CHOICE, December 2010 Vol. 48 No. 04
