Summary
A group portrait of four remarkable--and wealthy--New York women whose lives became intertwined as they pioneered new roles for women. With dash, wit, intelligence, and industry, Elisabeth Marbury, her partner, Elsie de Wolfe, Anne Morgan (daughter of J.P. Morgan), and Anne Vanderbilt had the courage to use their privileged status to transform their world. From attending New York's lively society balls and Europe's royal courts to marching in labor-organizing protests and nurturing legendary talents such as Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Cole Porter, their activities open an illuminating window onto the worlds of art, culture, politics, science, and finance at the beginning of the twentieth century.--From publisher description
