Groundbreakers, Rule-breakers & Rebels: 50 Unstoppable St. Louis Women

    In “Groundbreakers, Rule-breakers & Rebels,” first-time author Katie J. Moon tells the stories of 50 female pioneers with ties to St. Louis, from early suffragist Virginia Minor, to cookbook author Irma Rombauer, stunt pilot Marie Meyer, civil rights lawyer Margaret Bush Wilson and renowned activist poet Maya Angelou. Illustrated by St. Louis artist Rori! and published to coincide with the Missouri History Museum’s special exhibit Beyond the Ballot: St. Louis and Suffrage, “Groundbreakers” reveals how generations of fearless women changed their city and the world.
