Allison shares how she first discovered the book's subject, columnist Elsie Robinson, the shortcomings of history curriculums around the country when it comes to teaching about women, and some of the most inspiring stories from Elsie's life. Julianna and Allison also discuss how we can all embody Elsie's confidence and self-sufficiency and what she would likely have to say about our current world today.
