WOMEN IN BLUE

Women in Blue profiles 16 women who showed courage and grit to become professionals in law enforcement. Some, like Isabella Goodwin, did the same work as men but were not treated fairly in the early 1900s. 

Isabella met with great success as a New York City Police Department matron. Although she was performing the duties of a police detective, she did not hold the title, receive the salary, or earn the recognition that her male counterparts did. That all changed early in 1912 when a gang of criminals known as the Taxi Cab Robbers became the most wanted men in New York City and had the misfortune of meeting up with Isabella Goodwin.”

Readers meet Isabella and other awesome women who broke barriers to work in law enforcement.
