Women Trailblazers of the 1800s
For children of this generation, it may be hard to understand the double-standards, second-class treatment, and lack of rights women used to endure throughout history – even here in America. This edition of COBBLESTONE magazine provides insights into the history and evolution of women’s rights through the eyes and actions of some of the most famous activists and some of the unsung heroes.
From astronomers to architects, you’ll meet more than a dozen fascinating females and discover how many of the rights we take for granted today were not always available. Each article about the women who made history was written by women. COBBLESTONE magazine can help shed some light on a historical American struggle that still resonates even today.
