This chapter describes the environmental activism of seven women in Morgan City in Saint Mary Parish, Louisiana: Sally Herman, Fernell Cryar, Barbara LeLeux, Catherine Holcomb, Monica Laughlin Mancuso, Helen Solar, and Miriam Price. From the household and schoolroom, these women made a leap to public arenas, passing petitions, writing press releases, and testifying at permit hearings. Their efforts led to the closure of Marine Shale’s waste operations in Morgan City.
