These were uncompromising women who seized - or created - opportunities for themselves and who refused to be bowed by tradition, convention, or their generation's hostile, entrenched views about gender. While a few of them are now household names, many more have faded into oblivion, their personal and collective achievements mere footnotes in the history we are told -- Source other than Library of Congress.
