This chapter presents the stories of seven women—Mildred Fossier, Mary McCastle, Florence Gossen, Clara Baudoin, Liz Avants, Les Ann Kirkland, and Mary Tutwiler—demonstrating how their work as women often informed, motivated, and connected them. These women reiterate that the biggest beneficiaries of the Louisiana grassroots environmental movement are children and subsequent generations.
