Breaking New Ground: Women of the Saginaw Valley

Open a history book and the feats of founding fathers are prominently portrayed in its pages, but women played just as important a role in the settling of the Saginaw Valley. As time progressed, their efforts helped shape Mid-Michigan into what it is today.

In this documentary, hear the stories of early women settlers in their own words. Learn about the struggles women made for equal rights in the women's suffrage and civil rights movements. And see how some women have broken through the glass ceiling to become leaders in education, medicine, and the military.
