About this title


The Women of Scranton: 1880–1935 portrays the famous ladies, daring women, and heroines of everyday life in a booming coal town. Coal may have been king, but the intrepid women of America’s progressive era saw to it that Scranton became not merely an economic hub, but a “city beautiful.” No area of political, cultural, educational, or religious life in Scranton was untouched by their driving commitment to progress. Through historic photographs, readers will meet Scranton’s first generation of college-educated women; political activists and suffragettes; the first women lawyers and physicians; women’s clubs dedicated to philanthropy, education, health, and civic betterment; women merchants and entrepreneurs; teachers and women’s religious orders; and the immigrant women who dreamt of a better tomorrow
