Synopsis: Nevada women whose lives have been ignored by earlier historians now come to life through the pages of Anita Watson's meticulously documented volume. Into Their Own is a tribute to the late Jean Ford, founder of the Nevada Women's History Project and the Nevada Women's Archive and a Nevada State Senator from 1978 to 1982. She died in 1998.

Watson, an independent historian, has gathered revealing details from Ford's archive, and then as expanded that information with her own research. She traces the achievements of women in the state for more than a century, from the 1850s until the 1960s, focusing on the public activities and roles of Nevada women in five major areas: club and civic betterment, temperance, suffrage, politics, and women working outside the home. Throughout the decades of Euro-American settlement in Nevada, women worked for pay outside the home. The shift from the domestic domain into the public sphere was gradual, sometimes tumultuous, and usually visible. Into Their Own documents that shift using photographic images, the words, and the reports of and about the women involved. As such, it provides a valuable resource for students, journalists, scholars, and future historians.

Product Description: A study of the movement of Nevada women from the domestic domain into the public sphere. The author traces the achievements of women in the state for more than a century. from the 1850s to the 1960s, focusing on the public activities and roles of Nevada women in five major areas.
