Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS (March 2, 2012) – The Indiana Statehouse is featuring a unique display celebrating Women’s History Month in March. Women in Indiana Who Broke Barriers was designed by the Indiana State Archives and celebrates the life and work of four women who broke gender barriers in the Hoosier State. Those featured include:

  • Dr. Sarah Stockton (1842-1924), the first female physician at Central State Hospital in Indianapolis;
  • Emma Christy Baker (1865-1955), the first African-American woman to be an officer with the Indianapolis Police Department;
  • Antionette Dakin Leach (1859-1922), the first woman to challenge denial of admission to the Bar based on gender; and
  • Lovina Streight (1830-1910), who earned her title “Mother of the Fifty-first” by accompanying the Fifty-first Indiana Volunteer Infantry at battle and nursed the sick and dying.

The Women in Indiana Who Broke Barriers will be located in the fourth-floor atrium of the Statehouse and may be viewed during regular public hours.
