Looking into the past, it’s easy to find stories of men who have ruled and conquered the world. Most of the time, women aren’t the heroines of these stories. But that doesn’t mean women haven’t gone on adventures and made discoveries just like the men; it’s just that these stories aren’t the ones we read about in our history classes. While women like Cleopatra, Queen Victoria, and Joan of Arc are well-known female figures; there are so many other women who need to be remembered for their great achievements. Our “Hidden in History” series was created to uncover these women and share their stories with young readers.
Our newest addition to this series is “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Women During the Industrial Revolution.” The Industrial Revolution was a time of great change and progression. While men were often at the forefront of these changes, women were also playing major roles. Working alongside men to make the world a better place, women stood their ground as inventors and creators, ready to make their mark.
Recorded on the pages of “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Women During the Industrial Revolution” are the stories of some remarkable women. From Josephine Cochran, who created an early version of the dishwasher, to Elizabeth Magie, who invented the beloved game of Monopoly. We need to keep these stories alive, to remind us how they affect us on a daily basis. Remember these women who risked their lives in the name of the revolution.
“Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Women During the Industrial Revolution” is now available on Amazon! The e-book is $0.99 for a limited time and the paperback is only $19.95.
