Women Trailblazers of California: Pioneers to the Present by Gloria G. Harris & Hannah S. Cohen

Throughout California’s history, remarkable women have been at the core of change and innovation. In this unparalleled collection, Gloria Harris and Hannah Cohen relate the stories of forty women whose struggles and achievements have paved the way for generations. These women were strong and determined, overcoming prejudice, skepticism, and injustice. Visionary architect Julia Morgan designed Hearst Castle; Dolores Huerta cofounded United Farm Workers; Donaldina Cameron, the angry angel of Chinatown, rescued brothel workers; and silent film actress Mary Pickford helped form United Artists Pictures. From fearless pioneers and determined reformers to professionals from every walk of life, Harris and Cohen chronicle the triumphs and disappointments of diverse women who dared to take risks and break down barriers.

Women Trailblazers of California: Pioneers to the Present by Gloria G. Harris and Hannah S. Cohen is available from The History Press and California bookshops.
