The authors (retired professors of history and the humanities from Danville Area Community College) provide a portrait of the emergence of the women of Danville, Illinois into the public sphere during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In separate chapters they examine the engagement of Danville's women with the public life of their churches; the Clover Club, a literary study circle; the exclusively women managers of the Vermilion County Children's Home; the establishment and activities of the Danville Woman's Club; the public world of working women and their relationship to club women; the Travelers Aid Society and the Yong Women's Christian Association; and Danville's temperance movement.
