Women Who Made a Difference
Women Who Made a Difference has been published by the Arizona Business and Professional Women's Foundation to record and preserve the history of Arizona's working women.
This commemorative series of books was published to honor women of Arizona BPW and their contributions to culture and public service in their communities and the state of Arizona. Some women were legislators, teachers, doctors, county school superintendents, lawyers, city council members, chamber of commerce secretaries, and justices of the peace. Other women founded historical societies, owned newspapers, managed post offices, ranched, farmed, and operated lumber mills. In 1950 one woman even ran for state governor!
Together, these women business leaders helped create political and social changes that shaped modern Arizona.
Volume I covers the years 1921 - 1968 and is out of stock. Volume II includes many capsules of history while recording the lives of outstanding women who were members of BPW and also important in Arizona between 1921 and 1988.
