Part of why Laurel is so compelling to me is that she’s doing a job that’s unusual for a woman today, but was downright revolutionary in her time. In fact, it’s been suggested the idea might be far fetched.
Besides the fact that Laurel is based on a real person, I thought you might enjoy this fantastic article by M. Ruth Myers who writes a fantastic series about the adventures of Maggie Sullivan, a female PI in Dayton, Ohio in the late 1930’s.
You can read her amazing article here.
Do you know anyone who did an unusual job for their time?
