Synopsis

Haven tells the stories of the first American woman doctor, the first social worker, the first American woman to fly a plane, the first U.S. congresswoman, and 36 other women of note. His concise, action-packed stories will enlighten and inspire all. Who was it that led the most slaves to freedom along the underground railroad? Who started the drive toward the passage of the 19th and 20th amendments to our constitution? Who was the first black self-made millionaire in America? Who identified the horrors of DDT and led the fight toward banning its use? Readers of this collection might be surprised to find the answer to each of these questions is ...a woman! While men were making the headlines in American history, women were also doing good deeds, performing acts of valor, and achieving moments of greatness and inspiration. These are stories of some of the women who helped shape our nation. Each one struggled with a challenge that her male counterparts did not have to face-the deeply ingrained gender biases that worked to obstruct a woman's every step.
