KC History: Remarkable Kansas Women

On Friday's Walt Bodine Show, historian Monroe Dodd discusses the history of remarkable women in Kansas, with past KCUR contributor and author, Gina Kaufmann. Her new book More than Petticoats: Remarkable Kansas Womentells the stories of women who shaped the Sunflower State, including a dentist, an orator, a pilot, a mayor and a fugitive slave.

Plus, we hear about some other project Gina's been up to, including a series of gendered heath care narratives called A Waiting Room of One's Own.

You can attend the book release/performance/panel/party for A Waiting Room of One's Own on Friday, January 27th 5-9 p.m. at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire Street. Gina will be there moderating a panel as part of the event.
