Description:

Women and Social Movements contains the following resources:

  • 52 document projects that interpret and present documents, most of which are not otherwise available online. Each document project poses an interpretive question and provides a collection of documents that address the question. Altogether these document projects provide more than 1,250 documents, 450 images, and 500 links to other websites. They demonstrate that historical analysis is an interpretive process based on documents.

  • 19,000 pages of documents pertaining to Women and Social Movements. These materials have been selected by the Editors for their relevance to the focus of the Web site.

  • A dictionary of social movements and organizations.

  • A chronology of U.S. Women's History.

  • Teaching Tools with lesson ideas and document-based questions related to the Web site's document projects.

  • A bibliography of citations pertaining to Women and Social Movements.

The expanded Women and Social Movements in the United States: 1600-2000 Scholar’s Edition includes the Women’s Commissions Collection and Harvard University Press’ landmark five-volume Notable American Women: A Biographical Dictionary, available for the first time in electronic form.
