Cincinnati is a city of firsts–a city of revolution, a city of culture, a city of science. It once ruled alongside New York City and New Orleans as a major city of destination and advancement. We say it still is, but now the public has been disengaged from its real history and importance. Women’s roles in the city’s history are a large part of that. We aim to shed light on the women we discovered–the women who have changed the arts, sciences, trades, politics and environmental health in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
These are the women who have changed our lives, and we just haven’t known it.
