Who are the 10 Most Famous Women in Louisiana History?
If you were asked to name the ten most famous women in Louisiana history, what would you say? Governor Kathleen Blanco? Of course. Senator Mary Landrieu? Alas, the state's former solon missed out making this list. Joan of Arc, you say? No, even though there is a very famous statue of her in our state, the Catholic saint known as the Maid of Orleans was from France, not New Orleans.
So, who would make your list? Well, since March is Women's History month, we figured there was no better time to scour the internet - and the history books - and put together our list of the 10 Most Famous Women in Louisiana History.
