Meet the authors of "Women of Conscience: Social Reform in Danville, Illinois, 1890-1930",
Janet Duitsman Cornelius and Martha Lafrenz Kay.
"A richly layered account women's emergence into public life, Women of Conscience traces portraits of a wide range of individual women including church ladies, prostitutes, progressive reformers, and traditional clubwomen. It complicates and compliments more generalized histories of the New Woman."—Anne Ruggles Gere, University of Michigan (booksense)
