Description

Georgia's Remarkable Women: Daughters, Wives, Sisters, and Mothers Who Shaped History recognizes the women who helped to shape the Peach State.

Female teachers, writers, entrepreneurs, and artists from across the state are illuminated through short biographies and archival photographs and paintings. Setting their own standards and following their passions, they continue to inspire new generations with their achievements.

Meet Rebecca Latimer Felton, the first woman to sit as a U.S. senator; Juliette Gordon Low, the resilient founder of the Girl Scouts; Sarah Freeman Clarke, a painter who dared to pursue art and literature as a career; Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, the "Mother of the Blues," whose voice transcended race and class; and Margaret Mitchell, author of the enduring tale of survival, Gone with the Wind.
