Groundbreakers, Rule-Breakers and Rebels: Unstoppable St. Louis Women

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

STLCC-Florissant Valley 2021 Women’s History Month Celebrations
This year’s theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote”

“Groundbreakers, Rule-Breakers and Rebels: Unstoppable St. Louis Women,” March 10, 2-3 p.m.: Join Katie J. Moon, exhibits manager at the Missouri History Museum and author of “Groundbreakers, Rule-Breakers, and Rebels,” for a presentation about 50 female pioneers with ties to St. Louis, from European-born settlers like Marie-Thérèse Bourgeois Chouteau to 20th-century cookbook author Irma Rombauer to renowned activist poet Maya Angelou. Moon also uncovers histories of lesser-known figures who proved equally important to building the foundation of the city. Whether world famous or not, each of the trailblazing women in this book faced a host of specific obstacles and restrictions in their chosen fields that existed solely because of their gender. Their victories were all hard won and well earned.*
