In More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Oregon Women, author Gayle C. Shirley has gathered stories of ten extraordinary women from Oregon's past. While readers may be familiar with the lives of some of these women, such as missionary Anna Maria Pittman Lee and suffragist Abigail Scott Duniway, many of these women are little known. Now, for the first time, their lasting contributions are chronicled as a part of Oregon's history. Discover Mary Leonard, one of Oregon's first female lawyers, who found herself on both sides of the law; Lola Greene Baldwin, the nation's first policewoman, who zealously pursued her preventive policing out of Portland, Oregon; and Opal Whiteley, quite possibly the state's most mysterious author. All ten women, born before the twentieth century, faced incredible challenges. Read about their triumphs in this collection of absorbing biographies. ISBN: 1-56044-668-4 pages: 139
