Women Who Shaped America

By Wright Writers of Dayton

American women have always had the grit and determination to influence others and make important things happen. From working for the young colonies to homesteading on the Great Plains and the Wild West to navigating the hardships and deprivations of America’s Civil War, two world wars, and the Great Depression to the Space Age, women led, followed, or blazed new paths for themselves, their families, and all women. No matter which period we examine, American women often have left an indelible mark on history and on those who came after them. The members of Wright Writers of Dayton realized the importance of sharing the stories of women who helped to shape America—stories of both famous and unsung heroines. The stories in this anthology address the courageous actions of American women that shaped human lives and the course of history for our country.
