Mr. Gale tells of the many-sided career of one of the most enterprising women in our history. Myra Bradwell, wife of a Chicago lawyer who studied law herself and was denied admission to the Illinois Bar solely because she was a woman, became a successful legal publisher in a period when women were expected to stay at home and not meddle in what was considered to be a man's world.
