Wisconsin Women Making History

by Jan Schroder

Rest assured: There is no shortage of female history makers in the Badger State — as evidenced by Wisconsin Women Making History, an online database featuring over 100 notable women (a figure that’s growing by the day).

Inspiring stories span the decades between Electa “Wuhwehweeheemeew” Quinney (1798-1885), a member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians and the state’s first public school teacher and Dr. Marci Bowers (b. 1958), a UW-Madison graduate and staunch advocate for transgender rights who is internationally recognized in the field of gender-affirming surgery and clitoral restoration — plus dozens more.

And author Laura Ingalls Wilder, but of course.
