Bold Women in California History -A Young Adult non-fiction book paperback released September, 15, 2017, by Mountain Press Publishing signed by the author, Kay Moore.
Bold Women in California History reveals what women can do when they dare to be bold. From Sally Ride, the first American female astronaut, to Yoshiko Uchida, Japanese internment camp survivor turned children s author, to Elvira Virginia Mugarrieta, who dressed as a man in order to do things women of the time could not, the thirteen women portrayed in this collection broke down barriers of sexism, racism, and political opposition to emerge as heroines of their time. Whether that meant pushing for change in the state senate, as Rose Ann Vuich did, or escaping slavery and later doing good for the community, as Bridget Biddy Mason did, each and every one of these stories, unique as they are, show ways in which women have created lasting change. Perfect for school or home, this collection of short but informative biographies is both a valuable resource and an entertaining read.
Contains biographies of 13 women. Each and every one of these stories, unique as they are, show ways in which women from California have created lasting change.
