The library has a new Pinterest board highlighting historic firsts of women in the Texas legislative community.  Learn about trailblazers such as Edith Wilmans and Barbara Jordan, two women who lived in different times but made great strides for women's history. Wilmans was the first woman to serve in the Texas legislature, and Jordan was the first African-American woman to serve. The board also focuses on lesser-known individuals, such as the first woman to chair a House committee, the first woman to filibuster in the Texas Senate, and the first woman to serve as a legislative officer.  We invite you to view the board at: http://www.pinterest.com/texaslrl/historic-firsts-for-texas-women/
