About this title

Synopsis:

The sons of liberty are celebrated in the rebellious history of Boston--but what of their sisters? An audacious and determined procession of reformers, socialites, criminals and madams made the city what it is today. One hundred years before Rosa Parks, African American abolitionist Sarah Parker Remond refused to give up her seat while attending a play in Boston. Fiery activists Harriet Hemenway and Minna Hall led a boycott against bird plumage in ladies' dress and brought the fashion industry to its knees. Rachel Wall was the last woman to be hanged in Massachusetts after leading a daring life as a robber and pirate. Later, women like Boston Marathon runner Kathrine Switzer also blazed their own trails. Author Dina Vargo unearths the remarkable stories of the wild women of the Hub.

About the Author:

Dina Vargo has been a lover of history and tri-corn hats since dressing up as Betsy Ross for our nation's bicentennial. She is a volunteer tour guide for Boston By Foot, where she has developed an expertise in and giving "off-beat" walking tours. Dina is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and currently resides writing in Salem, Massachusetts.
