Women have always played a significant
role in the history and development of cultures around the
world, and the efforts of women in Florida have made serious
contributions to the current state of the region. This part
of the Florida Heritage Collection focuses on the many aspects
of these efforts and achievements, including works about
women pioneers in the state, feminist activism, biographical
information on important Florida women, and images of women
in Florida history. The documents contained in this collection
offer a unique perspective on Florida's history and culture.
Some of the works may include biographies and autobiographies
and accounts of specific women and their contributions in
health care, education, and other fields.
