Shirley profiles ten women from Oregon’s past. Most of them were unknown to the majority of Oregonians at the time. So here they can read of Mary Leonard, the state’s first woman admitted to the Oregon bar to practice law. She became a character to many, and readers will have to seek other biographies to find examples of effective, powerful women who made a name for themselves in the state’s legal history. There are other “firsts” in this volume: one of the first women doctors, Bethenia Owens-Adair; the first urban policewoman, Lola Green Baldwin; and an early homesteader and author, Alice Day Pratt.
The brief profiles of these women serve as introductions to their lives. Much complexity and nuance awaits readers who seek additional sources to understand them better, and especially to appreciate the depth of opposition and the breadth of restrictions these women encountered. More Than Petticoats presents a good start, especially for younger readers.

I wanted more about each person encountered. Hard to find books about these women. Each thumbnail sketch could be turned into a historical novel. Wish someone would write one!Published on June 14, 2013 by Barry Evans
