BookMark: More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Pennsylvania Women by Kate Hertzog (Twodot Books, 2007)

March 5, 2008

March is Women's History Month, a good time to take a look at the "More Than Petticoats" series. Each volume identifies a set of women who made a difference in one U.S. state. Remarkable Pennsylvania Women brings us the story of such notables as pioneering journalist Nellie Bly and Hannah Myers Longshore, the state's first female medical school professor.
