We’re talking about Arizona women who were (sometimes) well-behaved while blazing trails. We aren’t a state where fragile means feminine. Suffrage was a century ago, and even though Arizona women already had the right to vote, they helped their sisters in other states obtain it. This is a colorful collection of our first female politicians, some early fearless businesswomen, and pioneers who defined bravery in a whole new way. Meet bold and independent females who saw what needed doing in Arizona and did it. This program is being co-hosted by Glendale Public Library. REGISTER HERE.
