Real Women of Tampa and Hillsborough County

They created a civilized society long before Europeans arrived in the New World, helped establish Tampa as the nation’s cigar capital, led Florida’s first statewide suffrage movement, built ships during World War II, and pioneered movements in fields ranging from real estate development to social service that forged the community’s character. These are the Real Women whose lives and times author Doris Weatherford has collected for this comprehensive review of Tampa and Hillsborough County women from prehistory to the millennium.

This revised and updated edition, now for the first time in paperback, includes a new foreword by Pam Iorio, mayor of Tampa from 2003-2011, and a new afterword by historian Canter Brown, Jr., who offers a look at the decade since the original publication of the book in 2004.
