Molly Brown: More than Unsinkable

A Road Scholar Program by Barbara Kay

Though Margaret "Molly" Brown’s lasting fame stems from her survival of the Titanic disaster, her lasting influence arises from her achievements as a social reformer and champion of the rights of women, children, and workers. Molly’s journey from poverty and obscurity to international prominence traversed the mining camps of Colorado, the theaters and ballrooms of Paris and New York, and the voting booth, which she helped to open to women. Barbara Kay’s vivacious living history portrayal of Brown traces that journey, explaining the significance of each step and showing why it remains both instructive and inspiring today.
