In doing so, this collection of fifteen biographical essays productively complicates Arkansas history by providing a multidimensional focus on women, with a particular appreciation for how gendered issues influenced the historical moment in which they lived. Diverse in nature, Arkansas Women contains stories about women on the Arkansas frontier, including the narratives of indigenous women and their interactions with European men and of bondwomen of African descent who were forcibly moved to Arkansas from the seaboard South to labor on cotton plantations. There are also essays about twentieth-century women who were agents of change in their communities, such as Hilda Kahlert Cornish and the Arkansas birth control movement. Adolphine Fletcher Terry\'s antisegregationist social activism, and Sue Cowan Morris\'s Little Rock classroom teachers\' salary equalization suit. Collectively, these inspirational essays work to acknowledge women\'s accomplishments and to further discussions about their contributions to Arkansas\'s rich cultural heritage.\" --<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/5108069565#Person\/edwards_gary_t<\/a>> ; # Gary T.
