About the Book
The women in these stories did the unthinkable for their time: they followed their own paths, flouting convention and daring to break from the traditions of family and marriage. They chose a life outside the norm, a decision for which most paid dearly. Nell Shipman was overlooked because she was not as acquiescent as required; she opened an independent production company just when the major Hollywood studios began exerting their power. Isobel Gunn, once revealed to be a woman, lost her livelihood and her respectability. And almost everyone scorned Mother Caroline Fulham. In Rebel Women, you’ll discover women who faced conflict, adversity and doubt to follow their dreams.
"This book has passed one of the most difficult of reviewers' tests. It was read and then set aside to accommodate not only a move and a vacation, but also the insanity that is the summer reading club at our library. Even with all these distractions, my thoughts kept coming back to the stories of the eight exciting and spirited women profiled in this very good collection of biographies, and I wanted to read it again." —Grace Shepherd, CM Magazine
