The first American woman lawyer was named Belle Mansfield and she lived in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. I wanted to do a post to make my posts about her easier to find.
I first learn about Belle Mansfield and share.
How my mom found the Belle Mansfield statue.
Directions and photos of the Belle Mansfield statue.
UPDATE: When I realized the Christie Vilsack site about Mansfield had been taken down, I added this so check here for a little more information about Belle Mansfield and the statue. I updated the link to the Vilsack website on the initial post to the Internet Archive version so you can still read it.
