International Federation of Professional Business Women - 0 views

    This the offical website for the group and explains the mission and the values of the group as a whole. It also offers history on the creation of the group and what the group is currently involved with today. I found it extremely intresting that a Kentucky women born before women had the right to vote could make such a huge impact not only on a state level or a nation wide level, but on an international level, like Lena Phillips was able to accomplish in her lifetime.

    Thought this picture might be useful in the project on Female Orphan School to examine issues of class and race in the models of Kentucky womanhood projected from the school administrators for advertising purposes and/or fundraising. The role of the railroad and coal industries in the school could be examined also. Notes from KDL site: Woodford County, Kentucky. Kentucky Female Orphan School: Many girls at the Kentucky Female Orphan School, Midway, Ky. are daughters of Southern Railway men. In the background are several original buildings of the school which opened in 1849. Date: 1900 - 1954.
