Madison Magazine Recognizes Prominent Area Women
By Brennan NardiMadison MagazineSpecial To Channel 3000
Madison Magazine began chronicling interesting and often groundbreaking women from its inception in 1978. As the women's rights movement made inroads in the definition of a woman's place, you began to see fewer of us in swimsuit ads and more of us on the cover. When The Capital Times splashed "Dame County" across its front page in the late 1990s, the magazine responded with a cover featuring ten prominent Madisonians -- the first women to hold their titles in each of their respective professions.
A decade later, women continue to climb above the glass ceiling our predecessors broke for us at home and in the workplace, defining and redefining our roles as politicians and journalists, mothers and CEOs. Right here in Madison, there's important history in the making. Visit madisonmagazine.com for biographies of some of the women who've graced the cover of Madison Magazine through the years.
