The Sons of Liberty are celebrated in the rebellious history of Boston - but what of their sisters? An audacious and determined procession of reformers, socialites, criminals and madames made the city what it is today. One hundred years before Rosa Parks, African American abolitionist Sarah Parker Remond refused to give up her seat while attending a play in Boston. Fiery activists Harriet Hemenway and Minna Hall led a boycott against bird plumage in ladies' dress and brought the fashion industry to its knees. Rachel Wall was the last woman to be hanged in Boston after living life as a pirate. Author Dina Vargo unearths the remarkable stories of the Wild Women of the Hub.
