While industrialists were building the great rubber factories, cereal mills, and potteries, Akron women were weaving together the cultural and moral fabric of the city. Women established churches, hospitals, schools, and cultural institutions, even as they nurtured their families and worked in the city's factories, stores, and offices. Even though they were busy holding the fabric of Akron life together, they still found time to enjoy the city's wonderful entertainment and recreational attributes. Akron Women captures the rich diversity, determination, spirit, courage, and energy of this extraordinary population of women through the use of historic photos, rare advertising, and supporting commentary.
